Seals in­ves­ti­gated

The New Zealand Herald - - WORLD -

The US mil­i­tary has launched a homi­cide in­ves­ti­ga­tion into the death of a Spe­cial Forces sol­dier in Mali and whether mem­bers of the Navy Seals had a role in his killing. Staff Sergeant Lo­gan Mel­ger died on June 4 in Mali’s cap­i­tal, Ba­mako, where he was de­ployed as a mem­ber of the army’s 3rd Spe­cial Forces Group. Sus­pect­ing foul play, the US Army sent in­ves­ti­ga­tors to the scene, the New York Times re­ported. Two Seals were re­moved from the lo­ca­tion and placed on ad­min­is­tra­tive leave, ac­cord­ing to the news­pa­per.
