The 12 Thai boys and their soccer coach who were trapped in a cave will be discharged from the hospital Wednesday — a day earlier than expected. The team will also take questions during a news conference in an attempt to satisfy the intense public interest about their rescue and recovery, Reuters and The Guardian reported. The soccer team had been trapped in the flooded cave in northern Thailand for more than two weeks before a heroic three-day rescue operation. The boys, aged 11 to 17 years old, and their 25-year-old coach were reported to be in good health, with some fighting minor pneumonia and infections, after being rescued.

Killer who blamed attack on 'homosexual panic' to be executed
Ohio on Wednesday is set to execute a convicted murderer whose case garnered national attention when his defense argued that a "homosexual panic" may have prompted him to kill. Robert Van Hook was found guilty in 1985 of brutally stabbing David Self, 25, after meeting him in a Cincinnati bar. A three-judge panel rejected his insanity plea and sentenced him to death.
