US, Russia lend skill to non-stop Argentina sub huntBahía Blanca (Argentina) (AFP) – Eleven days after Argentina’s missing San Juan submarine went silent following an explosion, a 14-nation search has failed to find the vessel at the bottom of the Atlantic Ocean. For more than a week, aircraft from Argentina, Britain and the United States have crisscrossed the South Atlantic. A Russian Antonov transport plane has arrived with an underwater robot that can scour the ocean at a depth of 1,000 meters (3,300 feet), adding to the arsenal of sophisticated international recovery tools.
