La sección del Departamento de Justicia de Estados Unidos en Puerto Rico informó este lunes de la captura de un submarino semisumergible de 15,8 metros de eslora y 2,4 metros de ancho que transportaba unos 2.500 kilogramos de cocaína en aguas del mar Caribe.

La droga podría haber alcanzado un valor de 75 millones de dólares, según explicó en rueda de prensa el fiscal federal para el Distrito de Puerto Rico, Stephen Muldrow.

La embarcación habría zarpado de la costa norte de Colombia con el objetivo de descargar su mercancía en Puerto Rico. El submarino y tres tripulantes colombianos fueron detenidos el 8 de abril por la Guardia Costera. Los hombres fueron imputados el 14 de abril, aunque el Departamento de Justicia informó de la incautación este lunes.

El Titanic partió del puerto de Southampton el 10 de abril de 1912.

La catástrofe ocurrió entre la noche del 14 y la madrugada del 15 de abril de 1912.

El RMS Titanic, el buque de pasajeros más grande y majestuoso construido hasta entonces, realizaba su viaje inaugural desde Southampton, Inglaterra, hasta Nueva York, Estados Unidos, cuando chocó con un iceberg en las heladas aguas del Atlántico norte.

Su hundimiento dejó 1.500 muertos.

Los periódicos de entonces se llenaron de historias sobre héroes, pero también de villanos que supuestamente contribuyeron a la tragedia.
