  • Description

    A SOVIET ACCIDENTALLY CUT THE "HOT LINE" CABLE LAST NIGHT (WEDNESDAY) WHERE IT ENTERS THE SEA OFF THE COAST OF DENMARK. FOR A FEW SECOND BEFORE THE TRAFFIC COULD BE SWITCHED TO ANOTHER CABLE THERE WAS NO TOP PRIORITY LINK-UP BETWEEN WASHINGTON AND THE KREMLIN.

    THE FREIGHTER DASHAVA CUT THE CABLE AS IT WAS GOING TO THE HELP OF ANOTHER SOVIET FREIGHTER, THE MYSTITCHI, WHICH HAD RUN AGROUND. AS IT CUT THE CABLE, THE DASHAVA ALSO RAN AGROUND, AND OTHER SOVIET FREIGHTERS ARE THERE TO HELP BOTH SHIPS. DANISH AUTHORITIES HAVE ASKED THEM TO BE EXTREMELY CAREFUL AS A SECOND UNDERSEA CABLE RUNS CLOSE TO THE TWO STRANDED SHIPS.
