(Newser) – Afghan troops have found the body of one of two US Navy sailors who disappeared on Friday, a provincial official tells Xinhua. The official says a dozen insurgents have been arrested and the body will be turned over to American forces today. The Taliban had earlier offered to trade the man's corpse for detained insurgents. The other sailor is believed to still be in Taliban hands; troops searching for him are continuing to sweep Logar province.
