Pentagon: We Owe Transparency to Families of Soldiers Killed in Niger

The four U.S. soldiers killed in Niger were ambushed by a group of fifty ISIS-affiliated fighters, Joint Chiefs Chairman Gen. Joseph Dunford said in a Monday press conference. Dunford said the U.S. soldiers were part of an approximately 800-troop force in the region. The general further confirmed that one of the deceased soldiers became separated from his unit during the ambush. And while many questions remain surrounding the deadly incident, Dunford declared: “I think we owe the families and American people transparency.”
