WASHINGTON (ALBOENEWS) — The U.S. Commander of the 7th Fleet of the U.S. Navy, Vice Admiral Joseph Aucoin, has been relieved of duty.

A U.S. official told The Wall Street Journal Tuesday that the Vice Admiral is to be relieved officially on Wednesday. The dismissal comes after the collision of the USS John S. McCain with a commercial vessel, which left 10 sailors missing.
