3:46 pm
hello there we've got a good deal of cloud is drifting its way across the caspian sea at the moment you can see it on the satellite picture it's here actually edging its way east with that it does say it's bringing us a few showers will see a few of those around georgia there on sunday and pop a few in the northern parts of iran as well but elsewhere across the middle east is just pretty hot at the moment as you'd expect at this time of year so for baghdad will be up around forty six degrees over the next few days so not as hot as it has been but certainly very warm here in doha things are going to change and they going to get hotter and that's because the air is going to get a little bit dry up so forty four degrees will be our maximum on sunday then the winds really begin to pick up on monday so a blustery day and a hot one as well with draw iraq temperatures will make it to around forty five or
3:47 pm
forty six degrees a pretty sticky one here for this was the west a lot of cloud over parts ever try and it looks like we're going to see some pretty heavy showers here down to also southern parts of africa plenty of dry weather to be found but not quite for all of us have these winds coming in off the sea and as they do so they're going to pick up a lot of moisture so a fair amount of cloud and a few showers around many of the coasts particularly around parts of mozambique and madagascar we see plenty of showers here and generally speaking the further west you go the brighter the weather becomes on time and a review should be dry. a new series of rewind a can bring your people back to life and brand new updates on the best of al-jazeera documentaries the struggle continues but from back till now these districts rewind continues with the return of the lizard king steve child and one
3:48 pm
east upwards of two hundred species are going extinct every twenty four hours and a lot of that is attributed to wildlife trafficking rewind on al-jazeera. we understand the differences and the similarities of cultures across the world. so no matter where you call home al-jazeera will bring in the news and current of families that matter to lose. out is iraq. a dangerous rescue operation begins for the twelve boys and their football coach trapped in a flooded toy cave. logan piece it will be here at al-jazeera headquarters in doha also coming up south
3:49 pm
sudan's warring leaders try again to make peace agreeing to a power sharing deal. standing firm with his asian allies america's top diplomat shrugs off north korean accusations that he's behaving like a gangster. plus russian fans expressed disappointment but also pride after the hosts are eliminated from the world cup. and he divers have begun an extremely risky operation to rescue the twelve boys and their football coach from the cave complex in northern thailand their plight has transfixed the world as the authorities have struggled to devise a plan to get the team through twisting narrow and jacket passage ways that in some places are completely flooded the rescuers hope to bring all of them out before monsoon rains forecast for later on sunday cause even more flooding footballers
3:50 pm
have been trapped for more than two weeks. money today our readiness has reached its peak today we're carrying out the d.-day operation at ten am thirteen cave died as it went into. the cave to stop the evacuation of the kids the thirteen kids know about the operation that's being carried out and they're ready to come out with this they're ready to face any challenges let's bring in scott correspondent who's in scott how do they do it well peter there are many stages to this process and what we know now four hours into an operation was once mission impossible by the head of the operations here says that it started in the way it's going to work the way it is working again we're four hours into this there's a team of eighteen divers thirteen of them are international experts the other five are tied navy seals and they're bringing the boys out one at a time we don't know how large this first group is going to be each boy and their coach will have two divers with him and the way we know it's the way they were
3:51 pm
planning it and we're assuming this is how they're operating right now sticking to that initial plan is that the boys will have a you know a body a diving buddy with them and the diving buddy will actually have the air tank with a hose attached to it and now it's going to be very tough going peter particularly some of these passages because there's no room for a diver and the air tanks so it has to be fed through and the boy presumably would have to go through himself too so i don't know if you have one diver in the front one diver in the back but there's going to be a lot of very tricky maneuvers as they go through this so we know when they'll go through two spots as you mentioned completely submerged diving conditions and then they'll get to make their way to chamber three and that's where kind of the inside cave operations have been going on for the last several days they'll make their way there and then i would imagine regroup see some medical attention we know that doctors have also gone in into the cave system see them there and then proceed on out the front of the cave and that's the way they win and peter was their main
3:52 pm
calculation and in the run up to officially launching this was their main calculation scott look we've got to go into a good mood on this because the monsoon is just literally around the corner is two three days away. absolutely yeah they had you know yesterday. saturday they said that look conditions are perfect as perfect as they're going to be to carry out this operation and then they said you know we just need to make sure that it's safe enough to carry this out perfect meaning that they were able to get the water level down is far as they figured they'd be able to before these rains as you said peter start coming in they were low enough everybody was trained enough that they felt comfortable with the boys using this diving equipment with the divers that they were. ready to take the boys out they were trained enough the plan was was solidified enough and also the prepositioning of oxygen tanks probably medical supplies and personnel so everything came together
3:53 pm
they said and right now this is the go time they said because rains are coming it's months susan season here you know you can see behind me there are clouds on that mountain that houses this massive cave complex more rain is going to be coming that had a little rain this morning expecting more this afternoon evening but again peter when you look at how big this mountain range is behind me it doesn't necessarily mean that there has to be rain falling right here to feed water into the cape the flooded parts of this cave system it can be coming from miles away kilometers away and then drains into it so they're worried that even though the rain is not falling directly here it could start to rise and make things even more difficult we'll come back to your suspects in the coming minutes but in the meantime thanks very much will shell the palace looks now well closely at the enormous challenge of this rescue operation. the tome one cave is in northern thailand in the chiang rai province near the border with me and ma and laos it is one of the longest caves in the country stretching ten kilometers through the door and mounts range the boys
3:54 pm
are stuck just past a kevan known as party of beach now looking inside the mountain one point five kilometers from the main entrance navy seal teams the sit up a base and a cabin and no one is trying to three three kilometers in a semi in junction it forks off to an exit but that's flooded the cave widens to large cabins and narrows to passages so small that rescue is need to crew to get through the passageway climbs and drops which means when it rains water builds up in these steps for kilometers then is passing a big the boys are about four hundred metres after the spot and eight hundred to a thousand meters below the surface to get the boys out through the flooded patches rescuers have attached a guideline and daughters emergency oxygen tanks every twenty five to fifty metres the plan is that as they swim one navy diver will be beside them another one behind

keep in mind some ways don't know how to swim there are strong currents and the water is dark and muddy they're being given wet suits boots how mitts and a scuba mask but no tank the proposal being they'll get all from their dive buddy supply now don't take at least five hours to get each boy out so i know it may take a couple of days to complete the risk you ok let's bring in. a cave experts and u.s. national cave rescue commission a coordinator he joins us now from williams in indiana let's just walk walk us through the main risks here for the rescue team. well for the team themselves of course there's the risk that is as they're bringing the boys out there can be something that goes wrong in one of the dives and either one of the boys panics or has some type of medical emergency such as vomiting into the regulator mask which is it can be deadly and if they panic they can potentially also take the rescuer

with them so from a team standpoint that's one of the biggest dangers they face from the boy's standpoint of course those are also the same dangers the other fact that they that we have to look at is that they had nine days of starvation so they're still fairly weak they it takes a long time to recover from the nine days of starvation day had and they have not simply had that time to recover the situation did not allow them and their time to become fully strong and and i'm hoping that they have drilled well enough that there are any problems but it is still a huge risk how does that conversation go i mean how do the divers keep the boys calm because understandably you know the adrenaline will kick in the stress hormone cortisol will kick in they will perhaps want to go upwards to a pockets of air pockets of air the surface of the water isn't there because some of the tunneling is completely full of water. oh absolutely now one thing to keep
3:57 pm
in mind is that these these boys had nine days living on adrenaline and high cortisol levels their metabolic processes are. completely out of whack. the divers themselves have built a level of trust with the boys and that's part of the psychology of getting them out is having that level of trust and they having them there most of the places the diver can have they can touch and be right next to them there are those few spots where they cannot be side by side but again they can they can communicate with them by the fact that they're just right close there so with luck that keeps them call and of course we will not know how. to react until they've gone through it and it's true of just about everybody so for the divers give us a sense if you can as well how long would it take for one of these rescue divers
3:58 pm
you know these guys on a personal basis so they're at the heights of the game they're super fit they know what they're doing how long would it take them to get from where the point where the boys are to the exit point from the cave system versus you're attached to one of these children and you'll having to do a body breathing system with them i mean how much does that slow them down. well it slows them down incredibly and they're not actually doing a body breathing system they are a body next to them and scuba diving body breathing refers to swapping the regulator back and forth when one regulators failed but it does slow them down dramatically so normally it takes them about five hours to get from where they are inside the cave where the boys are located to the entrance now of course they don't have to go all the way to the entrance here they're going to the command post that set up inside the cave which is a little bit shorter of a distance and my understanding but it's even though that's a shorter distance it's still
3:59 pm
a lot longer because they are going slower with them so we will know after the first one or two come out how much time that adds and that will adjust the plan based on that information and why do you think they've decided not to utilize the drill holes that they put in place over where they thought the boys were as opposed to going for this option. but my understanding is that none of the drill holes have penetrated to the point where the boys were. and that's it still you're trying to get a new needle in a haystack they you could drill for days and days and days and weeks and weeks is still not hit the cave without the high precision surveys that are necessary to do so the the coming monsoon rains have the potential for flooding the cave even worse than it was when the boys were first trapped and if that happens given the fact that there is a very low amount of air exchange in the cave in the air was already starting to
4:00 pm
get to go bad it might have just resulted in. not being able to get them out alive which this is a preferred bowl alternative and we've spent saying from the beginning there are no good choices here understood me as a thank you very much and we'll have continuing coverage of what's going on in thailand for you here on al-jazeera. if the o.p.'s prime minister is in neighboring eritrea in the first such visit in almost thirty years these are the latest pictures coming into us here showing crowds in the capital asmara now the prime minister was greeted by the eritrean president. at the airport ahead of a summit between the two regional rivals ethiopia and eritrea who force a war in the past over a disputed border but last month there were signs of a thaw as ethiopia's new prime minister accepted a peace agreement and restarted flights for the first time since one nine hundred ninety eight. south sudan's warring parties have agreed to an.
