"Pictures: the mystical submarine discovery on the Swedish seabed," reads Tuesday's headline in Kvällsposten, a Southern Swedish daily.
Icelandic salvage hunting company Ocean X says it has found a small sunken Russian submarine, 20 meters long (65 feet) and 3.5 meters wide (11 feet), some 1.7 miles away from the coast of central Sweden. Swedish authorities haven't confirmed the nationality of the submarine.
Sweden reported nine months ago that a Russian vessel intrudes into its national waters, but authorities failed to find it despite the deployment of 200 men. It turns out that the vessel found yesterday was probably built in 1904 and could have served during World War I.
Anders Kallin, spokesperson for the Swedish armed forces, wouldn't confirm the submarine's nationality. But Swedish daily Dagens Nyheter (Today's News) was contacted by sources saying that there are Cyrillic letters on the sub's hull, confirming the Russian submarine hypothesis.
