  • Argentina ends missing submarine rescue mission

Investigators have searched for the ARA San Juan for 15 days since it first went missing on November 15.

Argentina's navy announced Thursday that the search for a missing submarine that has been lost for 15 days will continue but the rescue part of the mission is over, reflecting the faded hopes for finding the 44 crew members alive.

The decision to end the rescue mission comes after the Argentine navy said that a sound thought to be an explosion had been detected by United States and specialist agencies leading the search.

"We've had 28 ships, nine aircraft, 4,000 people involved, 18 countries supporting", Balbi told reporters.

"Despite the magnitude of our search it has not been possible to find the submarine", he said.
