Search begins for Indian sailors in crippled sub
(02-27 15:24)

Rescuers were searching the cramped confines of an Indian navy submarine after it returned to port in Mumbai today, a day after an onboard accident. Two sailors are missing.
Seven sailors were overcome by smoke Wednesday during a training exercise and were in stable condition at a Mumbai hospital, a navy spokesman said.
Navy chief Adm. D.K. Joshi resigned Wednesday to take responsibility for the accident and other incidents that have plagued the Indian navy in recent years. The government accepted his resignation.
Last August, another of the navy's Russian-made diesel-powered submarines, the INS Sindhurakshak, caught fire after an explosion and sank at its home port in Mumbai, killing all 18 sailors on board.—AP
