The youth soccer team trapped in the Tham Luang Nang Non cave complex in Thailand won't be rescued on Saturday, CNN reports, as officials deliberate on the best course of action to get them out.

What happened: The group of 12 boys, ages 11 to 16 per CNN, and their 25-year-old coach were found alive after 10 days in the cave, per the BBC. They entered the cave "during fine weather but became trapped when a sudden downpour flooded the narrow tunnels," CNN reports.
