U.S. warship collides with merchant vessel east of Singapore

WASHINGTON, Aug 20 (Reuters) - A U.S. warship was damaged after colliding with a merchant vessel east of Singapore on Monday, the U.S. Navy said.

The Navy said in a statement the guided-missile destroyer USS John S. McCain collided with the Alnic MC vessel while “the ship was transiting to a routine port visit in Singapore.”

“Initial reports indicate John S. McCain sustained damage to her port side aft,” the Navy said, adding that a search-and-rescue mission was under way. (Reporting by Lesley Wroughton; Editing by Peter Cooney)
