Britain honors sailors killed in WWII

Britain's Royal Navy floated a wreath Saturday over the recently discovered wreck of a World War II destroyer that went down with 110 men on board in a battle with Nazi forces.

The HMS Hunter was discovered this month by a Norwegian minehunter participating in exercises with British, Dutch and other NATO warships off the Norwegian coast, Britain's Defense Ministry said.

The 2,100-ton destroyer went down on April 10, 1940, as the Royal Navy tried to keep German forces from overrunning the strategic Norwegian port.
