The U.S. Navy said Sunday that it has sent the sunken Japanese fisheries training ship Ehime Maru to its final resting place in deep waters, following the retrieval of the remains of eight of the nine people killed when the vessel was rammed and sunk by a U.S. submarine in February.

High waves off Honolulu since Saturday night delayed the work to take the submerged Ehime Maru to its final destination. The 499-ton ship was hit by the USS Greeneville on Feb. 9 off Hawaii as the sub performed a rapid-surfacing drill for the benefit of civilian guests.
