Indonesia Sub Debris Found

Indonesia has recovered debris from the sunken submarine KRI Nanggala including torpedo cables, technical manuals, life rafts and metal plates. But there is no sign of the main body of the submarine where it is believed the bodies of the crew lie. The sub is at a depth of more than 2,700 feet in the Bali Sea, well below its crush depth of 900-odd feet and locating it is proving difficult. Even if found, raising the main body of the sub from such depths is rated highly difficult.
