U.S. hands over files on sunken Soviet sub
The Soviet submarine K-129 was on patrolling duty in 1968 with 98 crew members aboard.
The cause of the sinking has never been determined.
In 1974, as part of a special operation codenamed “Jennifer”, the submarine was recovered by the American Glomar Explorer ship, 750 miles from Hawaii. However, the crew's families were not present at their burial.
A U.S. government spokesman said the materials can help the families solve the puzzle over the deaths of their loved ones.
