Divers have found remains of missing American sailors in the flooded compartments of the Navy destroyer John S. McCain, which collided with an oil tanker on Monday off the coast of Singapore, the commander of the United States Pacific Fleet said Tuesday.

The commander, Adm. Scott H. Swift, did not say how many bodies had been recovered from the ship, which is docked at a naval base here. At a news conference, Admiral Swift also said that a body might have been located at sea by the Malaysian Navy, which is involved in the search for the 10 missing sailors.
