'Explosion' recorded near missing Argentine submarine

The Argentine navy says an event consistent with an explosion was recorded near where Argentine submarine disappeared last week with 44 crew on board, BBC reports.

 

A navy spokesman said an "abnormal, singular, short, violent, non-nuclear event" had been detected in the south Atlantic.

 

The ARA San Juan disappeared last Wednesday.

 

More than a dozen countries including Russia and the US have sent assistance.

 

On Thursday, a US navy aeroplane detected an "object" near the submarine's last-known location, the news agency Reuters reported. It said a witness on board the plane had said the object could not be identified.
