The U.S. Navy ordered a broad investigation into the performance and readiness of the Pacific-based 7th Fleet after the USS John S. McCain collided with an oil tanker in Southeast Asia, leaving 10 U.S. sailors missing and five injured.
It was the second major collision in two months involving the 7th Fleet. Seven sailors died in June when the USS Fitzgerald and a container ship collided in waters off Japan.
Vessels and aircraft from the U.S., Indonesia, Singapore and Malaysia were searching for the missing sailors.

Trying to recapture the Republican fervor that helped put him in office, President Donald Trump travels to Yuma, Arizona, on Tuesday to visit the nation's southern border and to Phoenix to rally thousands of supporters in a state where he's trashed both Republican senators.
The two-day trip, which also includes a stop in Reno, Nevada, to speak to veterans at an American Legion conference, marks his farthest journey west since taking office in January.
It comes at a politically turbulent time for the president. On Monday night, he addressed the nation about his decision to maintain a U.S. presence in Afghanistan, an action at odds with his repeated promises on the campaign trail to end the country's longest war.

Reversing his past calls for a speedy exit, President Donald Trump renewed the United States' commitment Monday to the 16-year-old war in Afghanistan, declaring that U.S. troops must "fight to win." He pointedly declined to disclose how many more troops might be sent to wage America's longest war.

The stars came out in the middle of the day, zoo animals ran in agitated circles, crickets chirped, birds fell silent and a chilly darkness settled upon the land Monday as the U.S. witnessed its first full-blown, coast-to-coast solar eclipse since World War I.
Millions of Americans gazed in wonder at the cosmic spectacle, with the best seats along the so-called path of totality that raced 2,600 miles (4,200 kilometers) across the continent from Oregon to South Carolina.
"It was a very primal experience," Julie Vigeland, of Portland, Oregon, said after she was moved to tears by the sight of the sun reduced to a silvery ring of light in Salem.

In an address to the nation Monday night, President Donald Trump laid out an updated approach to the U.S. military's actions in Afghanistan and South Asia.
Members of Congress on both sides of the aisle reacted swiftly, with some calling for a broader and more inclusive discussion with lawmakers, and with the American people, about the U.S.'s continued involvement in Afghanistan.

Anger boiled over at the first Charlottesville City Council meeting since a white nationalist rally in the city descended into violent chaos, with some residents screaming and cursing at councilors Monday night and calling for their resignations.
Scores of people packed the council's chambers, and The Daily Progress reported Mayor Mike Signer was interrupted by shouting several times in the first few minutes of the meeting. As tensions escalated, the meeting was halted. Live video showed protesters standing on a dais with a sign that said, "Blood on your hands."
After talking with members of the crowd, Councilor Wes Bellamy said the council would drop its agenda and focus on the crowd's concerns, the newspaper reported.

Two surfers from Brooklyn narrowly missed a shark attack in Cape Cod Monday.
A shark appeared and killed a seal not far from the shore in front of terrified beachgoers at Nauset Beach near Chatham, about two hours south of Boston.
The two surfers happened to be just feet away from the jaws of the shark. For a few minutes, people on the beach were in a panic, believing one of the men had been killed. In fact, it was the seal next to the surfer that the shark grabbed.
President Trump addressed members of the military and the country as he laid out his plans for U.S. involvement in Afghanistan.

Corporate fallout over President Donald Trump's comments on the violence that erupted in Charlottesville, Virgina, continues as two more charities announced this weekend they would cancel gala fundraisers at Trump’s Mar-a-Lago Club in Palm Beach, Florida.
The Preservation Foundation of Palm Beach and Palm Beach Zoo & Conservation Society both dissociated from the Trump property this weekend, NBC News reported.
The moves follow a divisive press conference last Tuesday where Trump refused to draw distinctions between neo-Nazi ralliers and their counter-protesters, instead blaming "both sides."
