Argentina: Satellite calls 'not from missing submarine'

HMS Protector has arrived in the search area around which global efforts to find and rescue an Argentine submarine reported missing in the South Atlantic Ocean are centred.

The UK is also deploying the Royal Navy's specialist Submarine Parachute Assistance Group to assist with the search efforts, and the Falklands Islands patrol vessel HMS Clyde is returning from a patrol to South Georgia in order to assist with the search.

A Navy Pressurized Rescue Module (PRM) is on its way to Argentina.

Capt Galeazzi spoke of a "short circuit" in the sub's batteries.

One Naval P-8 arrived in Argentina over the weekend, and another is arriving today.

"It is the first time that something like this has happened", said Silvina, who herself is a machinist in Argentina's Merchant Marines.

Hopes of finding survivors were revived when the navy said Saturday that its bases had received seven satellite calls attributed to the submersible.

More than a dozen women publicly came forward to accuse Trump of sexual misconduct - all stories Trump has denied. Al Franken less than one day after a woman accused the senator of forcibly kissing and groping her in 2006.

"At this point in the search and rescue mission we can't discard any hypothesis", said the Mar del Plata naval base chief Gabriel González on Saturday. The sub's primary role has been intelligence collection, including surveillance of fishing grounds in Argentina's economic zone for illegal fishing operations.

Boats searching for the German-built ARA San Juan on the ocean surface struggled against waves of up to 6 metres, navy spokesman Enrique Balbi said.

SOUTHCOM directed the deployment of the P-8A aircraft, underwater rescue teams and personnel to assist Argentina as support, the country request for global assistance to locate the missing submarine and crew. The SRC, also known as a McCann Chamber, is essentially technology unchanged since World War II, and it's suited to shallow-water rescues. There were sent from the United States three drone that can dive to 100 meters and underwater vehicle Bluefin 12D, which can explore depths of up to a mile. The sub, built in Germany in the 1980s, carries a crew of 44.

Storms complicated a search effort after it reported an electrical problem in the South Atlantic last week. The communication attempts were originally thought to indicate that the crew was trying to re-establish contact. "We haven't been able to locate the submarine on the surface".

Crew members' relatives gathered at a naval base in the coastal city of Mar del Plata, where the submarine had been expected to arrive around noon on Sunday from Ushuaia. Rain and high seas could interfere with satellite phone calls because of the relatively weak signal.

The government was working with Iridium Communications Inc to trace the location of the calls. They had raised hopes that the crew members were alive.

In the "worst-case scenario", the missing sub could run out of oxygen in two days, Balbi said. "We are waiting with a great deal of anxiety", said Andrea Ali, wife of Franco Ali, an electrician aboard the San Juan.
