September 20, 1987|Associated Press

NAPLES, Italy — American, Spanish and Italian warships escorted a convoy of four merchant ships from the Atlantic to the Mediterranean as part of an annual fall military exercise, the North Atlantic Treaty Organization said Saturday.

The exercise, part of Display Determination '87, was to simulate the arrival of reinforcements to NATO's southern region. It involved a linkup with another NATO exercise, Ocean Safari '87, to test the cooperation and control of forces between adjacent NATO commands, an alliance statement said.
