Moroccan rescuers continue their marathon effort to rescue Rayan, a five-year-old boy trapped down a well for a fourth night.

According to Press TV, the complex and risky earth-moving operation has gripped residents of the North African kingdom and even sparked sympathy in neighboring Algeria, a regional rival.

Rayan fell some 32 metres (100 feet) down the empty shaft in the remote village of Ighrane in Chefchaouen Province on Tuesday afternoon.
