Sub collides with Japanse merchant

A U.S. submarine has collided with a Japanese merchant vessel, a senior U.S. Navy official told CNN.

The USS Newport News was surfacing in the Arabian Sea south of the Straits of Hormuz when it hit the Japanese ship, the official said.

There were no injuries, he said, but there was some damage.

Too reminiscent of early least the headline. But it appears minor, and thankfully no casualties and no significant damage.

But not a good recent few weeks for the submarine force.
