A new US Navy ship has been sinking in the Mediterranean.
The USS John H. McCain was due to dock at a port in Malta on Monday, but instead the ship has already sunk, according the Navy.
The vessel was carrying 17,000 tons of coal to a US oil company when it ran aground, according a Navy statement.
The ship is now docked in port in Portsmouth, New Hampshire.

The US Navy said in a statement that the ship sank due to an electrical fault, and that all the crew aboard were rescued.
In the past, the Navy has docked ships in the area, but only for temporary stays.
This is the first time the ship is heading to the Mediterranean in 20 years.
Last month, the USS JohnS.
McCain sank while in the Arabian Gulf.
It sank as the US destroyer USS Vincennes fired upon the Iranian-flagged tanker that was carrying coal from the country.
