Soviet sub sunk during Second World War found





A Finnish-Swedish research team has discovered a Soviet submarine at the bottom of the Baltic Sea.

The submarine, identified as SC305, was sunk in 1942 by the Finnish navy during a Second World War battle. Research team spokesman Bjorn Rosenlof says the eight-member team, using sonar equipment, found the vessel at a depth of 136 metres between the Swedish east coast town of Grisslehamn and the Finnish Aland Islands.

Rosenloft said the sub is "in very good condition, aside from a hole in the hull where it was hit."

He said the team actually found the ship late last year, but was not able to identify it until recently.
