Submarine Week

All this week, the Navy has been conducting a Court of Inquiry into the Feb. 9 collision between a U.S. submarine and a Japanese fishing trawler. The surfacing USS Greeneville crippled the fishing vessel and sent nine of its passengers down with it. The first week of testimony has left many questions unanswered, but it may finally have begun the process of healing for the victims' families and for relations between the two countries. From Honolulu, NPR's Andy Bowers reports.
