>> The US Navy Monday confirming it has recovered the remains of all ten sailors killed after the warship John S McCain collided with a merchant vessel off Singapore last week. The bodies were found inside sealed sections of the damaged hull of the warship, moored at a naval base in Singapore.
The collision is the fourth major accident for the US Pacific Fleet this year, and has prompted a review of its operations. Seven US sailors died in June when the USS Fitzgerald collided with a container ship southwest of Japan. The Navy removed 7th fleet commander, Vice Admiral Joseph Aucoin, from his post, citing a loss of confidence in his ability to command.
