Report: Another U.S. Soldier Killed by Afghan Ally

March 16, 2012

An Afghan soldier turned his gun on an American last month, killing a 22-year-old Marine in a previously undisclosed case, the Associated Press reports. It marks at least the seventh U.S military member killed by a supposed ally in the past six weeks, as tension increased in Afghanistan.

Lance Cpl. Edward J. Dycus of Greenville, Miss., was shot in the back of the head on Feb. 1 while standing guard at an Afghan-U.S. base in the Marja district of Helmand province. It is not clear why the U.S. did not disclose the details of the shooting.

The Pentagon announced Dycus's death the day after the shooting, but said only that he died "while conducting combat operations."
