A decommissioned Russian nuclear submarine sank today in the Barents Sea, killing at least nine people on board. The 40-year-old sub was being towed into port when it was lost in high seas. The news stunned Russians who have not entirely recovered from the loss of the Kursk — and more than 100 submariners — three years ago. NPR's Lawrence Sheets reports.
