Kursk Theory Dropped

No fragments of a foreign submarine have been found near the sunken submarine Kursk, and officials no longer consider a collision with another vessel to be the most likely cause of the tragedy, Deputy Prime Minister Ilya Klebanov said Friday.

Investigators still haven’t determined what caused an explosion that sunk the Kursk on Aug. 12.

Officials had insisted that the most likely cause was a collision with a foreign submarine or ship.

Klebanov said submersibles inspected a 150-square-kilometer area around the Kursk but found no pieces of a foreign submarine. Click here to read our special report on The Kursk Trragedy.
