REPORT: ISIS Horrifically Killed Sgt. Johnson In Niger


U.S. Army Sgt. La David Johnson was found stripped, bound, and shot in the head two days after a fatal early October Islamic State ambush, an anonymous soldier tells CBSNews.

Johnson’s body was reportedly found by local children approximately a mile away from the main ambush site where three other soldiers were killed. Circumstances around the ambush remain murky after nearly a month with an ongoing Pentagon investigation.

Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Joseph Dunford previously indicated the soldiers were part of a 12-man team on an overnight mission deep in the heart of Niger. U.S. troops in Niger are engaged in train, advise, and assist mission for Nigerien security forces.

But it would be two days before children from the village discovered the fourth body of Sgt. La David Johnson about half a mile away. It’s still not clear how Johnson got separated from the rest.

“Johnson had been stripped of his uniform,” said a soldier who would only talk if his identity was concealed. “He told us his hands were tied and they’d shot him in the head.”
