Indian Submariners Feared Dead

August 15, 2013

INDIA: All 18 sailors on a docked navy submarine crippled by a pair of explosions are feared dead.

Rescuers have had no contact with any of the crew since the blasts at the Mumbai navy base.

Navy divers had opened one of its hatches but had not yet been able to enter the submarine because it was dark and full of muddy water.

"We hope for the best but we have to prepare for the worst," Admiral DK Joshi, the navy chief said.
