U.S. soldier slain in Niger may have been kidnapped by Islamic fighters – AOL News

There is speculation that one of the fallen U.S. soldiers in Niger, Sergeant La David Johnson, may have been killed after getting kidnapped by Islamic extremist fighters.

According to a CBS News report on Friday, military sources inside the West African country “believe ISIS fighters decided to try and kidnap Johnson. The fighters later shot him and dumped his body in the bushes, his hands roped together.”

The report comes as questions still remain about why Johnson’s body was not recovered until two days after the October 4 attack which killed three fellow soldiers.
