Thai boys stuck in a cave

Thailand has granted citizenship to the coach and three members of a football team dramatically rescued from a flooded cave last month.

During their ordeal, it emerged that the boys and their coach were among around 480,000 stateless people living in the south‑east Asian country.

It prompted calls to fast‑track their citizenship applications.

The four were part of a 13‑strong team, known as the Wild Boars, who became trapped deep in a cave on 23 June.

They were found by two British divers nine days later, but it took another six days to rescue the first team members.
