Missing Indonesian submarine found 850 meters deep By Reuters




DENPASAR (Reuters) – An Indonesian submarine missing Wednesday was found in three pieces in the depths of the Bali Sea, the country’s military authorities said on Sunday.

Indonesian President Joko Widodo offered his condolences to the family of the 53 crew members of KRI Nanggala-402, a submarine that entered service 44 years ago.

He had given no more signs of life on Wednesday as he prepared for a test torpedo fire.

“On the basis of the evidence gathered, we can affirm that the KRI Nanggala sank and that all the crew members are dead,” Marshal Hadi Tjahjanto, chief of staff of the armed forces, told reporters.

The wreckage of the submarine was found 850 meters deep, beyond its maximum diving area.

Indonesia had five submarines before the accident: two German-built Type 209 models, including the Nanggala, and three more recent ones, South Korean-designed.
