Two US troops are missing in eastern Afghanistan. An Afghan official says one may have been killed and the other captured by the Taliban.

NATO said in a statement Saturday that the two service members left their compound the previous day in Kabul but did not return. It did not identify the pair by nationality but US officials say they are American. The military has dispatched vehicles and rotary-winged aircraft to search for them and their vehicle. Coalition forces have also offered a reward of 20,000 US dollars for their return.

On the same day, five American troops died in bombings in the south where international forces are stepping up the fight against the insurgents.
