The back of his head had been smashed by something, possibly a bullet, said Boubacar. The soldier?s wrists were bound with rope, he said, raising the possibility that the militants ? whom the Pentagon suspects were affiliated with the Islamic State ? seized Johnson during the firefight and held him captive.

The villagers? accounts come as the Niger operation is under intense scrutiny in the United States, with lawmakers expressing concern that they have received insufficient or conflicting information about what happened.
