  • Description

    A FRENCH NAVAL HELICOPTER SEARCHING FOR THE SUBMARINE, MINERVE, MISSING WITH 52 MEN ABOARD, HAS RECOVERED PIECES OF WRECKAGE FROM THE MEDITERRANEAN AND THEY HAVE BEEN REMOVED FOR ANALYSIS AND IDENTIFICATION. MEANWHILE, OTHER SEARCHERS HAVE LOCATED AN UNIDENTIFIED OBJECT ON THE SEA BED NEAR TOULON.

    A MASSIVE AIR AND SEA RESCUE FORCE HAS BEEN COMBING A LARGE AREA OF THE WESTERN MEDITERRANEAN SINCE THE MINERVE WAS REPORTED MISSING OFF TOULON ON SATURDAY. SOME PESSIMISM HAS BEEN EXPRESSED BECAUSE SONAR DETECTION DEVICES ARE EFFECTIVE ONTO TO A DEPTH OF SOME 600 FEET (200 METRES), WHILE SOME PARTS OF THE MEDITERRANEAN ARE FAR DEEPER.

    THE UNIDENTIFIED OBJECT JUST LOCATED IS SAID TO BE ABOUT 820 FEET (250 METRES) DOWN.
