Finns drop depth charge on sub

The Finnish military has dropped depth charges on to a suspected submarine in the sea outside Helsinki after twice detecting the presence of a foreign object in the area.

The navy's maritime operations chief, Olavi Jantunen, said they could not identify the "underwater object" but had begun an investigation, which could take weeks.

Parliamentary defence committee spokesman Jussi Niinisto said that the military occasionally detects such activity but described the use of depth charges as unusual.
