Turkey's Suluin cave surveyed for first time


A massive subterranean cave in Turkey is being explored and measured properly for the first time, by a team from a nearby university.

Diving in the Suluin cave, in Antalya, has been forbidden since 1955, when two American divers died while exploring underwater.

But now a team from Antalya Akdeniz university is surveying the cave and measuring its exact depth.
