Salvage effort underway for Indonesian submarine that sank with dozens aboard

THE hunt for a missing Indonesian submarine with 53 crew turned into a salvage effort today after recovered debris suggested it broke apart as it sank off the coast of Bali.

Warships, planes and hundreds of military personnel had led a frantic search for the KRI Nanggala 402 since it disappeared this week during training exercises, hoping for a miracle rescue before its known oxygen reserves ran out.
