In 2002, divers stumbled upon the wrecks of three Dutch warships that took 900 crew members to their watery graves during World War II's Battle of the Java Sea.

Finding them again has so far proved, well, impossible.

Divers hoping to examine the wrecks ahead of the 75th anniversary of the 1942 battle found imprints of the wrecks off Indonesia using sonar, but the wrecks themselves have mysteriously vanished—one in part and two in whole, reports the Guardian.

"The wrecks of HNLMS De Ruyter and HNLMS Java have seemingly gone completely missing.

A large piece is also missing of HNLMS Kortenaer," says the Dutch defense ministry, which has launched an investigation and fears the wrecks were illegally salvaged.

As more than 100 ships and submarines from World War II rest in neighboring waters, the area is known to attract salvage companies in search of steel, aluminum, and brass.

Israel's Defense Ministry tweeted back Saturday, saying the original story on the site AWD News was "totally fictitious."

Reports in local press suggest Italy could be the next country to bow to pressure from the US, banning Huawei and ZTE from contributing to communications infrastructure.

Although many telcos across the bloc have been taking precautionary measures against Huawei and ZTE, Telecom Italia (TIM) has previously stated it would continue to work with the vendors until the government told it otherwise.

This is a market which looked relatively safe for the both parties, but things are starting to look quite wobbly.

This is a largely unconfirmed report however Italy’s La Stampa newspaper has claimed the Defense Ministry and Ministry of Foreign Affairs is ready to bring out the ‘Golder Powers’ to enforce the ban.

The ‘Golden Powers’ effectively give the government the power to do whatever it wants, and in this case will be applied to contracts allowing the government and telcos to exit without financial penalties from the vendors.

Security concerns have of course been cited as the reasoning, with the paper suggesting strong pressure from the US government.
