All 53 crew members in sunken Indonesian submarine dead
"There were parts of KRI Nanggala 402 – it was broken into three pieces," said Navy Chief of Staff Yudo Margono on Sunday.
Indonesian military head Hadi Tjahjanto, meanwhile, told reporters that "all 53 personnel onboard have passed".
Authorities said that they received signals from the location more than 800 metres (2,600 feet) deep early Sunday morning and that they had used an underwater submarine rescue vehicle supplied by Singapore to get a visual confirmation.
Tjahjanto said more parts from the vessel were discovered Sunday, including an anchor and safety suits worn by crew members. ■
