U.S. civilian engineer found dead in Kabul

KABUL (Reuters) - A U.S. civilian engineer, who worked on a military base in Kabul, was found dead in the Afghan capital after going missing, an Afghan intelligence source told Reuters on Tuesday, adding that the man appeared to have been murdered.

The NATO-led International Security Assistance Force had said late on Monday that a U.S. Department of Defense civilian employee had died that day in eastern Afghanistan.

They confirmed on Tuesday that the man had died in Kabul, and was an engineer. They declined further comment.
