Daesh Captures Cache Of US Weapons, American Soldier’s ID

Over the weekend, Daesh, through the group’s Amaq News Agency, posted photographs online depicting what is claimed to be American weapons captured in the Nangarhar Province of Afghanistan. The weapons reportedly belonged to a soldier named Ryan Larson, whose military ID was also depicted.

The cache included a portable rocket launcher, a radio and grenades. The Pentagon said that it was “unfortunate” that Larson’s ID and equipment had been taken, but has denied reports that Larson himself had been captured.

“SPC Larson was attached to a unit conducting a partnered [operation] with Afghan Forces,” said commander Ron Flesvig, a military spokesperson. “The soldier’s ID and some of the equipment were left behind after the [operation]. The loss of personal identification is unfortunate.”
