New York police were questioning three men after finding them in a bizarre submarine floating just off Manhattan, New York, USA.

The men were found near the place Queen Mary 2 was moored, police said.

What the three men were doing with the sub was not immediately clear. The sub was round with a small door on top.

Local reports suggested the sub was a copy of a submarine known as a "Turtle," built in the 1700s. It was used to attack British ships during the American Revolution.

Police found the submarine with two men on board nearing a security zone around the Queen Mary 2.

A third male was inside a nearby ship, police said.

"All three males were expected to be charged with a number of violations," they said, adding that authorities impounded both vessels.

Local radio reported that the sub had oxygen tanks.

紐約市警察發現三名男子駕駛著一艘形狀怪異的潛艇,他們在浮經美國紐約曼哈頓時被紐約警方攔下訊問。

警方表示,這三名男性在郵輪瑪莉皇后二號停泊處附近被發現,目前還不清楚這三人打算用這艘頂部有蓋艙的圓形潛水艇來做什麼。

當地報導推測,這艘潛艇是一艘仿造十八世紀「海龜號」潛艇的複製品。海龜號是在美國獨立戰爭時期被建造來攻擊英國戰艦。

警方在瑪莉皇后二號警戒水域內發現這艘潛艇,當時兩名男子在附近的一艘小艇上;另一名則在潛艇內。

警方指出:「這三人都將被控違反諸多法規,兩艘船已被當局扣押。」

當地廣播報導,這艘潛艇內配備氧氣桶。(翻譯:袁星塵)
