NATO: Body of dead US sailor recovered in Afghanistan

Afghan and foreign forces have recovered the remains of one of two U.S. servicemen who went missing from their compound in Kabul last week, the NATO-led force said on Tuesday.

Earlier, one of two U.S. soldiers who went missing in Afghanistan was a captive of the Taliban and the other had been killed, a spokesman for the insurgents said on Sunday.

The Taliban leadership would decide later on the fate of the captive, Zabihullah Mujahid told Reuters by phone from an undisclosed location.

"Afghan and coalition forces recovered the remains of a missing ISAF (International Security Assistance Force) service member Sunday in eastern Afghanistan after an extensive search," the alliance said in a statement.
