美海军官员:海军将解除第七舰队司令的职务

The U.S. Navy is expected to relieve the commander of the 7th Fleet on Wednesday after several collisions involving warships, including one Monday that killed 10 U.S. sailors.

Officials told multiple news agencies that Navy Pacific Fleet commander Admiral Scott Swift would remove Vice Admiral Joseph Aucoin after meeting with him in Japan.

Aucoin was due to retire in January, but his departure was moved up after the USS John S. McCain became the second U.S. guided-missile destroyer to collide with a commercial vessel in as many months.

Scott said at a news conference Tuesday that divers have recovered human remains from the ship, which suffered "significant damage."

U.S. investigators are trying to determine what led to the collision with a Liberian tanker ship near the Strait of Malacca. Navy photos show a gaping hole below the waterline on the destroyer's port side. Some sleeping areas and communications rooms flooded as a result.

In response to the incident, the Navy ordered an immediate operational pause across the U.S. fleet.

The White House Press Office released a statement Tuesday mourning the deaths of the 10 U.S. sailors..

"As the Navy begins the process of recovering our fallen sailors, our thoughts and prayers go out to their families and friends," the statement said.
