Hong Kong -- The missing Indonesia submarine with 53 sailors on board has been officially declared "sunk" by the country’s military chief hours after the remaining oxygen supply was believed to have run and after discovering debris from inside the submarine on the surface of the Bali Sea.

"We all feel so bereaved about this incident,” Marshal Hadi Tjahjanto told the press Saturday.

"The elements of the Navy have found oil spill and debris, which are authentic evidence of the sinking phase of the KRI Nanggala [402 submarine]," he said at a press conference in Bali Saturday.

Indonesia navy declares lost sub with 53 aboard sunk

BANYUWANGI, Indonesia (AP) — Indonesia’s navy on Saturday declared its missing submarine had sunk and cracked open after finding items from the vessel over the past two days, apparently ending hope of finding any of the 53 crew members alive.

Military chief Hadi Tjahjanto said the presence of an oil slick as well as debris near the site where the submarine last dove Wednesday off the island of Bali were clear proof the KRI Nanggala 402 had sunk. Indonesian officials earlier considered the vessel to be only missing, but said the submarine’s oxygen supply would have run out early Saturday.
