JAKARTA, April 21 -- An Indonesian military submarine on Wednesday lost contact during an exercise in the waters off the island of Bali, reports Anadolu Agency (AA) quoted the military’s chief.

Marshal Hadi Tjahjanto, commander of the Indonesian National Armed Forces, told reporters the military has deployed all vessels with underwater detection systems to do searches in an area around 95 kilometres (60 miles) from Bali.
