US Navy ship, oil tanker collide near Singapore

Ten US Navy sailors are missing and five have been injured after a US destroyer and an oil tanker collided near Singapore on Monday, the Navy says.

The guided missile destroyer USS John S McCain was sailing east of Singapore and preparing to stop in the port when the collision with the Liberian-flagged vessel occurred, reports BBC.

A wide-ranging search and rescue operation is under way.

It is the second collision involving a US Navy ship in recent months.
