A large dent in the Kursk's front section discovered

The Russian government says it has evidence to suggest that the nuclear submarine Kursk, which sank in August, was involved in a collision. The deputy prime minister, Ilya Klebanov, said recovery workers had discovered a large dent in the submarine's front section and several long scratch marks on the hull which could only have been caused by a collision with an underwater object. But he said a final decision would not be reached until the vessel was raised from the Barents Sea next summer. The Russian navy insists that a foreign submarine was to blame for the disaster, although this is disputed by western experts, who say an explosion on board is more likely.
