U.S. Sailors Missing After Maritime Collision Off Singapore

The U.S. guided-missile destroyer USS John S. McCain sustained damage to its hull after a collision with the Liberian-flagged, Greek-owned oil tanker, Alnic MC. A U.S. Navy statement said that 10 U.S. sailors were missing and five were injured in the incident on August 21 in the Singapore Strait. The warship is named after U.S. Senator John McCain's father and grandfather, who were both admirals in the U.S. Navy. (Reuters)
