An intact German World War I submarine with 23 bodies inside has been found in the North Sea, according to authorities.

The location of the wreck, which lies in nearly 100 feet of water in the North Sea, is being kept secret...

The submarine would have had 22 crew and a commander on board, West Flanders provincial governor Carl Decaluwe told De Standaard newspaper.

The UB II-type dive boat that was found is 27 meters (88 feet) long and 6 meters (almost 20 feet) wide, and is lying at about a 45 degree angle, between 25-30 meters (82-98 feet) below the surface. "The impact damage was at the front, but the submarine remains closed and there are 23 people still onboard".

Images of the sub show that it's coated with barnacles and seaweed.

Two torpedo tubes have been destroyed but the lower tube is intact and closed.

Health officials confirmed at least 50 people were killed in Southern Iraq on Thursday as a result of two separate attacks. The group's only other stronghold is Hawija, in Kirkuk province some 300 kilometres north of Baghdad.

Decaluwe said the U-boat was found by researchers. To block German fleet in port, and neutralize, British decided in April 1918, and scuttled some of ir ships of war at entrance of channel, which has remained as a famous episode of conflict in Belgium.

"There have already been 11 sunken U-boats found in Belgian waters, but this is best kept", said Termote.

The German submarines, however, managed to sink 2,600 allied shipping vessels.

Its base was in the medieval city of Bruges, 12 kilometres from the coast but linked to the sea at Ostend and Zeebrugge by canals.

Earlier this year, unseen photographs of German World War One submarines washed up on the English coast were published for the very first time.
