The World

A New Zealand plane has spotted a submarine in the territorial waters of the Cook Islands, an associated territory, and has reported the finding to the United States, Prime Minister David Lange said. He would not identify the submarine or say whether it had left the area. Most defense links between the United States and New Zealand, including intelligence sharing, were cut after Lange's government banned nuclear-armed or nuclear-powered warships from its ports. However, sources in Wellington said Washington has continued to provide reports on regional activity.
