TEHRAN, Iran (AP) — Iranian media say a naval destroyer has sunk in the Caspian Sea after crashing into a breakwater earlier this month.

Mizan Online showed footage Sunday of the Damavand, which crashed on Jan. 10 during a storm, killing two crew members.

The 100-meter (yard) long destroyer, which had an onboard helipad, joined the fleet in 2015.
