The U.s. navy put the admiral who is in command of the Seventh Fleet from its function. It is a response to two serious collisions that two naval ships in recent months.

That report The Washington Post and The Wall Street Journal Wednesday.

It is going to be admiral Joseph Aucoin, the command has conducted since september 2015. The two collisions have a big shock to weigh in the navy.

Two months ago, the USS Fitzgerald, off the coast of Japan have already collided with an American container ship. Seven crew of that destroyer came, therefore, to life. The ship was on the starboard side so badly damaged that it almost sank.

In the collision last Monday between destroyer USS John S. McCain and a tanker are probably ten deaths.
