Top US Navy commander in Japan over destroyer collisionThe US Navy’s top commander visited Japan Tuesday to meet the grieving families of seven sailors killed in a weekend accident, as investigators probe questions over the timing of the collision with a container ship. Admiral John Richardson arrived at the US naval base in Yokosuka on the outskirts of Tokyo to meet bereaved relatives and officers who served on the USS Fitzgerald. “It’s an intimate meeting, very solemn grieving with families, so we’re not even taking photos,” Commander Ron Flanders, press officer at the US Naval Forces in Japan, told AFP.
