Foreign Sub Spotted Off Vladivostok

VLADIVOSTOK, Far East -- A foreign submarine has been spotted close to Russian territorial waters in the Far East, officials said Monday.

The submarine, seen Saturday in Peter the Great Bay, near Vladivostok, was tentatively identified as a nuclear-powered vessel of the Los Angeles class, or a type of attack submarine used by the United States. It was detected by an anti-submarine ship, a Russian Pacific Fleet headquarters official told Interfax.
