Massive hunt for missing US troops

Nato sets up checkpoints in search of two men who are missing in Afghan's Logar province.

    A massive search is under way for two US soldiers who went missing in eastern Afghanistan's Logar province after they departed their compound in Kabul City on Friday. 

    Taliban sources have told Al Jazeera they are holding one of the two servicemen and say the other is dead.

    Nato and Afghan troops have set up many street checkpoints to search vehicles for any clues that may lead them to the missing men.
