German First World War submarine wreck discovered with 23 crewmen still onboard

Tue, 19 Sep 2017 11:28:43 -0400

(image) A German First World War U-boat has been found off the Belgian coast almost totally intact and with the bodies of all 23 sailors onboard. The U-Boat II was found lying on its starboard side at the bottom of the North Sea at a depth of 27 metres, close to the coastal resort of Ostend. At this stage, it is unclear whether the submarine was sunk by a mine, a British ship or a British plane. The find is the best preserved of its kind in the North Sea. Its exact location is being kept secret to discourage trophy hunters. Although a part of the submarine’s bow is missing, the torpedoes remain in place. The submarine hatches are closed, which indicates that the vessel has never been discovered before and that the crew of 22 sailors and one commander have remained onboard for about 100 years. Belgian authorities have informed the German ambassador and processes to identify the men and to protect the discovery have begun. The find, which came after underwater scans suggested there could be a wreck in Belgian waters, was confirmed today by the governor of West Flanders. The well-preserved wreck of a World War One German submarine.   Credit: Yves Herman /Reuters During the First World War, the German fleet in Flanders numbered 19 submarines. 15 of them sank, 11 of them in the North Sea.  Between 1915 and 1916 30 similar models to the wreck were made. Images of the wreck are not clear enough to give the number of the U-Boot. The Het Laatste Niews newspaper reported it could be U-Boot 27, 29 or 32. All three were sank in 1916 and 1917 by British ships and by a British plane. The most promising theory is that the submarine hit a mine tethered to the bottom of the sea by a cable. The wreck is 27 metres long and six metres wide. The U-Boot II model was a bigger, improved version of the type I U-Boot. The 270-ton submarine could dive to a maximum of 50 metres and disappear under the waves in 30 to 45 seconds. Compared to the earlier model, it had more electrical power and batteries that allowed it to stay submerged for longer. Bodies of soldiers from the First World War are still being discovered in Belgium on the battlefields of Flanders.  In 2013 archaelogists examined a German U-Boot II submarine, which had washed up on the Kent coast.

Watch moment Russian helicopter 'accidentally fires rockets at bystanders'

Wed, 20 Sep 2017 01:37:23 -0400

(image) Dramatic video footage has emerged of a helicopter accidentally firing a rocket at bystanders watching Russia's military drills. At least two bystanders were injured and two cars burnt down in the incident that occurred during the Zapad 2017 military exercises, the news website reported Tuesday, citing an unidentified source familiar with the situation.  According to the Yekaterinburg regional news website that first broke the story and published a video of the incident, two military helicopters were chasing a target when one of them accidentally fired air-to-ground rockets at bystanders.  The video of the incident, published by, depicts a helicopter firing a shot at a man walking near three cars. “[The helicopters] were 500 meters away from the target. They activated the weapon chain, but something malfunctioned, and rockets went down [earlier],” the source told and added that two people – “most likely journalists” – were hospitalised with serious injuries. The incident was reported to have taken place at the Luzhski range right outside of St. Petersburg. It remains unclear when it happened, but the report suggests that it wasn’t long before Russian President Vladimir Putin visited the range on Monday. Later on Tuesday the RBC news outlet reported that the incident happened on September 16, citing an anonymous source close to Russia’s Defence Ministry. The source claimed three people got injured in the incident, and none of them were civilians. RBC published another video of the incident, showing the helicopter firing rockets at a military truck parked near three apparent civilian cars.   The Defence Ministry refuted claims that the shot was fired at bystanders who were watching the Zapad exercise. The video posted by depicts an incident that happened “at a different period of time,” during another army aviation exercise, the Ministry spokespeople told RBC.   They confirmed the fact that a helicopter accidentally fired a rocket at a parking lot, and said that an empty military truck was damaged as a result. Information about “many people heavily injured” is either “deliberate provocation,” or “someone’s personal silliness,” the Ministry officials said. Zapad 2017 is a large-scale joint military exercise of Russia and Belarus that raised concerns in neighboring European countries as a potential threat to regional security. 12,700 troops are officially said to be participating, together with some 140 tanks, up to 150 artillery and air defence units and more than 40 planes and helicopters.

'Shocking' disregard for safety in U.S. meningitis case -prosecutor

Tue, 19 Sep 2017 15:53:09 -0400

(image) By Nate Raymond BOSTON (Reuters) - A federal prosecutor on Tuesday accused a Massachusetts pharmacist charged with murder for his role in a deadly 2012 U.S. meningitis outbreak of showing a "shocking" disregard for patients' lives, while his lawyer argued the man was no killer. Glenn Chin, a former supervisory pharmacist at New England Compounding Center, oversaw the production in filthy conditions of tainted steroids, Assistant U.S. Attorney George Varghese said at the start of the man's trial in Boston federal court. Varghese told jurors that Chin, 49, recklessly failed to ensure the compounding pharmacy's drugs were produced in sanitary conditions in order to keep up with demand from hospitals nationally for its products.
