> The search for a missing Thai soccer team and their coach on Friday ended a sixth day. The boys aged between 11 and 16 and their 25 year old coach, disappeared inside this flooded cave after deciding to explore the complex of caverns in northern Thailand. Overnight rescue workers drilled through the side of a mountain that covers the cave, in the hope that the hole would help drain water from inside.
It was said to be partially successful. On Friday, Thai Prime Minister Prayut Chan-o-cha visited the site, offering encouragement to families and rescuers who have been joined by US military personnel and British divers. Rescuers continue to pump water out of the cave network in Chiang Mai Province, but so far there's still no trace of the missing kids.
And efforts to find them have been severely hampered by heavy rain. For relatives of the missing boys, the only recourse is a sixth day of prayers.
