Two issues ago, the Herald revisited the tragic Ehime Maru accident – an international incident which threatened the amicable US-Japan relationship.

Now there’s another accident that bears some eerie similarities to the Ehime Maru incident. This time, however, it’s a Japanese destroyer that is at the center of the controversy.

According to this article in the Daily Yomiuri , the Atago, a high-tech Japanese destroyer on its way back to Japan from Hawaii, collided with a small fishing boat off Tokyo.

Two people are missing and at least one official is wondering why it took so long to report the accident.
