Afghan Taliban say have bodies of 2 drowned foreign troops

Two members of the NATO-led force occupying Afghanistan were reported missing on Friday and the Taliban said they were holding the bodies of two drowned foreign soldiers.

The spokesman Qare Yousuf told Reuters by telephone from an undisclosed location that they had recovered the bodies of the drowned soldiers on Wednesday in the western Badghis province.

The province's police chief, Abdul Jabar, said the two soldiers were Americans, who drowned in a river after arriving in the area on Wednesday.

Earlier the NATO-led force in Afghanistan said two of its members were reported missing in the west of the country on Wednesday.

The force did not identify the nationality of the missing soldiers. Troops from more than 40 nations are members of the nearly 110,000-strong NATO-led force, two-thirds of them American.
