THAM LUANG, Thailand (Reuters) - Divers began an operation to rescue 12 boys and their soccer coach trapped in a cave complex in northern Thailand, the head of the rescue mission said on Sunday.

Rescuers began the mission at 10 am local time (0300 GMT) and it would take many hours before the first boy emerged from the cave, Narongsak Osottanakorn, head of the rescue mission, told reporters.
