U.S. Navy to launch fleet-wide probe as search for 10 missing sailors goes onBy Karishma Singh and Fathin Ungku SINGAPORE (Reuters) – Ships, aircraft and divers from an international search-and-rescue operation were still looking for 10 missing U.S. sailors on Tuesday after a collision between a U.S. warship and a merchant vessel in waters near Singapore and Malaysia. The USS John S. McCain and the tanker Alnic MC collided early on Monday while the guided-missile destroyer was nearing Singapore for a routine port call. The collision tore a hole in the warship’s port side at the waterline, flooding compartments that included a crew sleeping area.
