Taliban death threat

16 Jul, 2009

The Taliban threatens to kill a captured American soldier unless the US suspends its military operations in two districts of southeastern Afghanistan. While the military dismisses the death threats, it airdrops fliers demanding the soldier’s release. The US military does not name Bowe as the captured soldier, but already has air and ground troops searching for him.
