The ships clashed in the Battle of the Atlantic in 1942 and were lost for more than seven decades in an area known as the Graveyard of the Atlantic.
Researchers led by the US National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s office (NOAA) of National Marine Sanctuaries discovered the vessels about 48 kilometres from shore in August.
Man avoids jail for killing burglar
STADE. An 81-year-old man avoided a jail sentence on Monday for shooting and killing a teenage intruder who broke into his house in Sittensen, Lower Saxony in 2010.
The state court in Stade found Ernst B not guilty of manslaughter but passed a nine-month suspended sentence.
The teenager broke into the man’s home in Sittensen with four other masked men, threatening him and demanding money. When the burglar alarm went off, the pensioner was able to get free and grab one of the guns he kept in the house.
As the men fled, he fired several shots, hitting the 16-year-old fatally in the back. The rest of the gang were jailed for between three-and-a-half and four years.
Police said that 17 people were arrested during the course of the day and 45 were injured – 44 of them police officers.
Organisers from the anti-Islamic party Pro NRW had originally given notice of a 1,500-strong protest march to the police under the banner of the group Hooligans against Salafists (HoGeSa).
