Divers enter Indian submarine where 18 feared dead
NEW DELHI (AP) - Indian navy divers have entered a crippled submarine hit by twin explosions but have yet to reach any of the 18 sailors who are feared dead inside the vessel, a naval official said on Thursday.
The Russian-built submarine had also been damaged in a deadly explosion in 2010 and had only recently returned to service.
The official, speaking on condition of anonymity because he was not authorised to speak to the media, said water was being pumped from the flooded, diesel-powered submarine so it could be raised completely to the surface.
It is currently partially submerged at a dock in a Mumbai navy base, with a portion visible above the waterline.
