US sailors missing after warship collision

The US navy is ordering a “wide investigation” of its Pacific fleet after the second collision in as many months. In the latest, a search is still under way for 10 US navy sailors missing after their destroyer crashed into an oil tanker near Singapore. The USS John McCain was on its way for a routine port visit when it collided with the tanker, ripping a large hole in its hull.
