Wreckage of WWI German U-boat found

The wreckage of a WWI German submarine has been found by the Dutch Navy.

The Defense Ministry says the wreck of the U-106 is lying on the seabed 40 meters (130 feet) underwater and 65 kilometers (40 miles) north of Terschelling, an island in the Wadden Sea off the northern Netherlands.

The submarine was first discovered in October 2009, but the find was only announced Wednesday after the Dutch Defense Ministry authorities confirmed its identity with German authorities.
