[efoods]An American soldier who went missing from a U.S. base in eastern Afghanistan was “sold” to a local militant group – which claims it will soon release a video of the captive and a list of demands, a U.S. military official said.

“Our leaders have not decided on the fate of this soldier,” said a commander with the Taliban‘s hard-line Haqqani faction, according to Agence-France Press. “They will decide on his fate and soon we will present video tapes of the coalition soldier and our demand to media.”

The identity of the captured soldier has not been released in order to protect his safety while U.S. troops desperately comb the area for him.
