US Navy dismisses commander after deadly warship collisionThe US Navy confirmed Wednesday it had sacked the commander of its Seventh Fleet after a deadly collision between a destroyer and a tanker off Singapore, the latest of several accidents involving an American warship in Asian waters. Vice Admiral Joseph Aucoin was relieved "due to a loss of confidence in his ability to command", a navy statement said. The navy is undertaking a fleet-wide global investigation after Monday's incident involving the USS John S. McCain, which left 10 sailors missing and five injured after a gaping hole was torn in the warship's side.
