Russia Submarine Accident

Phil Ittner reports from Moscow that the Russian navy is frantically trying to save more than 100 sailors trapped on board a submarine lying on the bottom of the Barents Sea in Russia's arctic north. The boat fell 480 feet to the sea floor Sunday, during naval exercises. A spokesman for the Russian navy's general staff said the accident could have been caused by a collision with a foreign submarine, although he gave no evidence for this.
