A fire aboard a Russian navy research submersible has killed 14 crew members, Russian media reports say, reports BBC.

The crew members were poisoned by fumes when the vessel caught fire while taking biometric measurements on Monday, the defence ministry said.

The vessel was based at Severomorsk, in the Murmansk region, which is the main base of the Northern Fleet.
