WASHINGTON ? The U.S. military has detected Chinese nuclear-powered submarines in waters near Guam in the western Pacific since around March, U.S. government sources said Wednesday.
The detection came after the U.S. military deployed additional B-52 bombers to Andersen Air Force Base on the Pacific island, the sources said. The Chinese submarines were detected and tracked by P-3C patrol planes and military satellites, the sources said, without stating how often they were encountered. (Kyodo News)
