Sailor KIA in Taliban Ambush Recovered; MIA Still, well, MIA

The US has recovered the body of the sailor killed in Afghanistan ambush in which his comrade was snatched by the Taliban.

The body of one of two US sailors missing in Afghanistan since last week has been found, Nato says.

Afghan and foreign forces recovered the man's remains on Sunday in the eastern province of Logar after an extensive search, said a Nato statement.

The two vanished on Friday after driving out of a military base without escort for reasons that remain unclear.

The Taliban has already said they killed one of the men in a gun battle and captured the other.
