UNIDENTIFIED UNDERWATER OBJECT SEARCHED OFF FINNISH COAST           
       Finland's coastal border guard stopped on Wednesday [8th] the 2-day searches of an "unidentified underwater object" conducted jointly with the country's navy units. The information of a submarine allegedly seen in the area of the Porvoo port city came on Monday morning from a witness, Finnish navy spokesman Jakko Savisaari says. Despite the fact that the informer was a little drunk, his evidence was taken seriously, because there were several reports of underwater objects seen near Finnish territorial waters that day. According to Mr. Savisaari, a patrol ship, which arrived on Monday in the suspected area, failed to find anything, and the searches were stopped yesterday.
