The Pentagon identified the two Americans killed in Afghanistan

News Hour:

The Pentagon on Thursday identified the two Americans killed in Afghanistan earlier this week as a US Army sergeant and a civilian employee of the army. They were Sergeant Douglas Riney, 26, and Michael Sauro, 40.

Riney was with a support squadron in the Fort Hood, Texas-based 1st Cavalry Division, and Sauro was employed by the Defense Ammunition Center in McAlester, Oklahoma, reports BSS.

They were killed when a gunman opened fire at a military ammunition supply point near Camp Morehead, a base in Afghanistan used for Afghan commando training, a US official said.

Afghan officials said it appeared to be an “insider attack”.
