Rescuers are continuing their search for an Indonesian navy submarine with 53 people aboard, which has gone missing north of Bali since Wednesday. The search teams found an oil spill, near where the vessel submerged. It was conducting a torpedo drill that day when it failed to radio in as expected. Two Indonesian navy ships are helping to search for it and Australia, Singapore and India have also offered assistance. The submarine was built in Germany in the 1970s, and joined the Indonesian navy in 1981.CGTN YouTube Channel
