Two US Servicemen Seized by Afghan Taliban
BBC -- An Afghan official says the two men were seized in Logar province after an exchange of fire with the militants on Friday. A spokesman for the Nato-led force (Isaf) later confirmed the missing were US soldiers, AFP reports. The US military later offered a $20,000 (£12,956) reward for the information leading to the safe release of the men. A Nato statement later said that two service members left their compound on Friday in Kabul "and did not return". Local radio stations also aired US statements offering the reward for the safe release of "two coalition personnel", according to Reuters.
