Desperate search for submarine continues

53 seamen are on board the military submarine missing off Bali. The search continues, but is becoming increasingly futile because of the limited oxygen reserves on board. In addition to the USA, Australia is now also involved. During the course of Saturday, the rescue ship MV Swift Rescue of the Singapore Navy was also expected to take part in the action off the coast of Bali, said Djawara Whimbo, spokesman for the Indonesian armed forces.

According to calculations by the Indonesian Navy, the oxygen reserves on board the submarine KRI Nanggala-402, which has been missing with a crew of 53 since Wednesday, only lasted until Saturday morning.
