The American nuclear aircraft carrier USS THEODORE ROOSEVELT arrived in Table Bay shortly before 7am this morning and has gone to anchor in the roadstead outside the port.

Yesterday the accompanying cruiser, USS MONTEREY arrived also in Table Bay and has since taken up a berth at the V&A Waterfront.

Another ship in the group, the replenishment vessel USS SUPPLY is due to arrive in the port of Richards Bay on Monday, 6 October.

Later next week the two US ships presently in Cape Town will sail for the east coast in the direction of Durban and will participate in an exercise with ships of the South African and French Navies off the KwaZulu Natal coast.

The remainder of the American carrier group are believed to be travelling to the Indian Ocean via the Mediterranean and Red Seas.
