The founder of Amazon, Jeff Bezos, says an underwater expedition he financed has located the engines that launched the 1969 Apollo 11 moon mission.

Mr Bezos says sonar was used to find the engines, more than four-thousand metres below the surface of the Atlantic Ocean.

They were jettisoned from the Saturn rocket as it accelerated out of the earth's atmosphere to take Neil Armstrong to the moon.
