Reports claim that another set of four boys are expected to walk out of the cave complex, shortly after two boys were initially rescued.
Lieutenant-General Kongcheep Tantrawanit was quoted saying that another four of the boys are expected to walk out “shortly”.
They are currently at the divers’ “base camp”, inside the cave system, he said, according to Agence France Press.
“Four boys have reached chamber three and will walk out of the cave shortly,” he said.
Reports also say that doctors assessed the boys inside the cave on Saturday and drew up a priority evacuation list with the weakest to be brought out first.
