Ten boys have now been rescued from a cave in Thailand where a group of 12 boys from a youth soccer team and their coach had been trapped for over two weeks, per CNN.

The details: In the operation, which began on Sunday morning, a team of Thai and foreign divers are taking the boys out one-by-one in an assisted underwater dive, AP reports. Their journey back to the entrance of the cave could take as long as 5.5 hours, though Thai officials have said that the speed of the rescues are better than expected.
