July 6, 2018 -- Níveis de oxigénio em baixa e previsões de chuva forte pressionam as
autoridades a tentar um plano de resgate dos 12 rapazes e seu treinador
de futebol retidos desde 23 de junho em gruta inundada na Tailândia.

The death of a former Thai navy diver while on an oxygen supply mission highlights the risks for the boys, who have no scuba diving experience, if authorities decide they should attempt to swim out of the flooded cave.

Officials are warning that oxygen levels inside the cave are falling as rescuers are racing to get more oxygen pipes into the cave.

Rescuers, including international teams, are pondering other ways to bring the group out before heavy rains hit the country’s north which could further hamper the rescue operation.

Rescue alternatives include teaching the boys to dive and then swim out, a highly risky venture, remaining in the cave for months until the wet season ends and flood waters recede, or drilling a shaft into the cave from the forest above.

The boys, aged between 11 and 16, and their assistant coach were found inside the Tham Luang cave in northern Chiang Rai province on July 2, after nine days underground. They went missing after setting out to explore the cave on June 23.


21 days to go until NEW GRAPHIC NEWS - a new website for a new era.

28 years ago — April 2, 1991 — the original Graphic News launched using a precursor to today’s websites that used email technology. These enabled infographics to be delivered electronically around the world over telephone lines. What was possible was very limited - It took 10 minutes for a 100K file to download.

Since then delivery speeds and website technology have moved on. The new website will offer the best online experience possible now, adding many new features (and offering new opportunities for the future), but still enabling existing users to select and download infographics and enjoy the distinct brand of visual journalism that is Graphic News.


Over the coming days I will give further information. Please contact me if you have any questions. Fiona Roberts, froberts @ graphicnews.com
