July 2, 1987- CBS News Special Report **


White House sources have confirmed to CBS News that there has been a clash between US and Soviet warships in the Mediterranean. Less than an hour ago, a Soviet cruiser rammed the frigate USS Klakring east of Malta. The Soviet ship had been shadowing the Saratoga carrier battle group for the last two days. After the ramming, Klakring was fired upon and sustained further damage. The frigate returned fire along with other nearby US ships. As of right now, both ships are dead in the water and burning. There is no word on the condition of either ship or casualties.
