wwii-era japanese sub found
Divers on a research mission have located a sunken Japanese mini-submarine off Hawaii in a discovery that may rewrite the histroy of WWII.
The submarine, which still has both of its torpedoes and is marked by bullet holes, may be the one sunk by a US Navy destroyer early on December 7, 1941. Its discovery may lend physical evidence to the contention that the US destroyer firing on the sub were the first shots in the United States involvement in WWII.
The remains of two Japanese sailors are believed to be inside the sub, which is said to be in excellent condition at a depth of 1,200 feet.
