Shortly after claiming it was holding two American Navy personnel, the Taliban announced that one of them was killed two days ago. And now, the group is trying to exchange the soldier’s corpse for insurgent prisoners. But local authorities immediately responded with, "Let's talk about the one that is still alive," according to the Associated Press. The two Americans were reportedly captured during an ambush two days ago and NATO has confirmed that they went missing. A Taliban spokesman, who at first denied any knowledge of the pair, said the militants plan to release a video of the sailors in captivity. Only one other coalition service member is currently known to be in the hands of the Taliban—Spc. Bowe Bergdahl, who disappeared from his base over a year ago. Meanwhile, five American soldiers were killed by hidden bombs on Saturday.
