Helsinki : A group of Finnish divers on Thursday claimed they found the wreckage of the German submarine U-26, which sank in the Gulf of Finland nearly 100 years ago. Badewanne, a Finnish diving research group, told Finnish daily Helsingin Sanomat that the wreckage was found in the western part of the Gulf of Finland, Xinhua reported, according to IANS. The German submarine was built in May 1914, two months before World War I broke out, and sank during the war in August 1915. The U-26 was the pride of Germany since it bombed and sank four Russian warships in the Baltic Sea during its one year of service.
