Remains of Two Missing US Soldiers Recovered in Iraq


The families of two U.S. soldiers who were captured in Iraq say the soldiers' remains have been found more than a year after they disappeared.

The families of Private Byron Fouty and Sergeant Alex Jimenez said Friday that the U.S. Army notified them of the soldiers' deaths this week.

They say the men were identified by their dental records.

The soldiers were captured in May of 2007 when their unit was ambushed near Baghdad. The body of a third soldier kidnapped in the same attack was recovered earlier this year from the Euphrates River.

Four other U.S. soldiers and an Iraqi were killed in the ambush.
