Russian Sub Rescue

Friday, August 05, 2005
According to a CNN report a rescue vessel is attempting to drag a disabled mini-submarine with seven sailors onboard to shallower waters off Russia's Pacific coast.

Accoding to the CNN report, Interfax news agency quoted Adm. Victor Federov, the commander of Russia's Pacific Fleet, as saying the vessel was trying to raise the submarine as it was being towed in about 190 meters (600 feet) of water.

However, although Federov said some sort of object was secured and was being towed, it was unclear if it was the sub. Underwater cameras are being placed to identify the object. The situation started Thursday when the AS-28 mini-submarine became entangled in a fishing net during a military exercise off the Kamchatka peninsula.
