US US airliner "USS John S. McCain" with a tanker in front of Singapore killed several US soldiers, the American Pacific Fleet confirmed. On the ship, corpses had been found.

  Divers had discovered the mortal remains of seafarers, according to the commandant of the fleet, Admiral Scott Swift. He did not comment on how many dead people were found. Officially, ten US soldiers are still missing.

There has been a leak of about three meters on the back of the US ship since the crash. On board the "McCain" there were besides the death victims also five injured. No one of the crew members of the tanker was injured.

Search also in the water
The search also focused on the vicinity of the place where the collision took place. The area is about eight kilometers from the coast, near the entrance to the Strait of Malacca, one of the world's most frequented shipping routes.

For the US Pacific Fleet, which was recently strengthened because of the Korean conflict, it is the second heavy shipwreck this summer. It was not until the middle of June that seven sailors had been killed in the collision of the destroyer "USS Fitzgerald" with a container ship.

Standstill in the Navy
Because of the new disaster, the Navy continued the activities of the entire fleet for a day worldwide. Admiral John Richardson, commander of the naval forces, also announced a thorough investigation of the seventh fleet seated in the Pacific.
