CAIRO - The US aircraft carrier Abraham Lincoln, deployed by President Donald Trump's administration to the Middle East as a warning to Iran, passed through Egypt's Suez Canal on Thursday, the Suez Canal Authority said.

The deployment of the carrier strike group is meant to show the United States will retaliate with "unrelenting force" to any attack, national security adviser John Bolton said on Sunday.

Iran has dismissed announcement of a US aircraft carrier deployment as old news, recycled for psychological warfare.
