MAE SAI, Thailand (AP) — An aide to the Thai Navy SEAL commander says four boys were brought out of the flooded cave in northern Thailand today and the ongoing rescue operation is over for the day.

The aide, Sitthichai Klangpattana, didn’t comment on the boys’ health or say how well the operation has gone.

A total of eight of the 12 boys have now been brought out of the treacherous cave system by divers, including four who were brought out on Sunday, when the rescue operation began.
