Indonesian Navy Says Missing Submarine Sunk and Crew of 53 is Dead

The search to rescue a missing Indonesian submarine is now a recovery mission after the navy changed the status from “sub miss” to “sub sank” and declared the ship sunk and the crew of 53 dead on Saturday.

The KRI Nanggala 402 went missing early Wednesday morning off the coast of Bali during a training exercise, and Indonesian military officials estimated the sailors would run out of oxygen early Saturday.

The exact location of the vessel has not yet been pinpointed, Indonesian Navy Chief of Staff Yudo Margono said at a news conference on Saturday.
