Saman Kunan’s body was taken to Bangkok, as colleagues and family members lament his dedication to his job and courageous nature. The diver died on Friday at 1 am when he ran out of oxygen coming back to the surface after his mission from ‘chamber 3’ in the Tham Luang caves the boys were found in. 4 boys were rescued on Sunday, and many still remain.
“The Thai armed forces website offered condolences to Kunan’s family and wrote: “Cave diving is one of the most difficult jobs in the world.”
Live updates have surfaced since the incident, that the search will resume.
been following the thai cave rescue mission and it's so amazing how people are coming together to help those little boys, imagine being trapped in a cave for 2 weeks 🙁

After England beat Sweden, English fans wrecked an IKEA store, smashed bus stops, damaged buses & vehicles, including an ambulance, and in this video, ran over a man and almost ran over a little girl.
But hey, they're just excited, right?

David Davis, the leading minister for Brexit negotiations resigns as Brexit secretary. The secretary illustrated a number of disagreements he had with number 10. The secretary said it looked less and less likely” the party would deliver on the Brexit result and Tory commitment to leave the customs union and single market.”
“The general direction of policy will leave us in at best a weak negotiating position and possible an inescapable one,” he wrote, adding: “The inevitable consequence of the proposed policies will be to make the supposed control by Parliament illusory rather than real.”
This leaves Prime Minister Theresa May quite vulnerable.

David Davis resigning at such a crucial time shows @Theresa_May has no authority left and is incapable of delivering Brexit.
With her Government in chaos, if she clings on, it's clear she's more interested in hanging on for her own sake than serving the people of our country.

I’m not saying Theresa May is handling David Davis’ resignation badly, but she’s just asked me if I’d like to be Brexit Secretary…

In the last 8 months Theresa May's First Minister, Defence Secretary, Home Secretary, Development Secretary and now Brexit Secretary have all resigned. Normally Prime Ministers don't survive that.
