An Argentine submarine that disappeared with 44 crew members on board had been on a spying mission to the Falklands, the country's government has admitted.

Argentina's Navy has always claimed the ARA San Juan was carrying out training exercises when it vanished without a trace in November last year.

The sub has never been found but investigators claim a violent explosion was reported near its last known location in the South Atlantic, as it returned to the Mar del Plata naval base.

Marcos Penas, answering a question arising from a report into the sub's disappearance, told Argentina's Congress that the San Juan's 'primary tactical objective' was 'the location, identification, photographic/film recording of refrigerated ships, logistic ships, oil tankers, and research vessels using other flags'.
