Moscow - A Russian nuclear-powered submarine was slightly damage after being hit by a fishing boat in the Pacific and is undergoing repairs in port, news agencies quoted a military source as saying.

Wednesday's incident involved the Svyatoy Georgiy Pobedonosets, capable of carrying nuclear missiles that were built for the Soviet navy, news agencies quoted a local navy official as saying.

"The submarine suffered insignificant damage to its external hull," an unnamed source told the RIA Novosti news agency.
