Pentagon: US soldiers possibly killed by friendly fire in Afghanistan

( CNN) The two Army rangers killed Thursday in Afghanistan might have been struck by friendly flaming, Pentagon spokesman Capt. Jeff Davis told reporters on Friday.

He used to say “some of the initial indications” point to that as a possibility, but that now is “no indication” of any intentional attacks by Afghanistan soldiers on their American advisers.

Earlier Friday, the Pentagon announced that Sgts. Joshua P. Rodgers, 22, of Bloomington, Illinois, and Cameron H. Thomas, 23, of Kettering, Ohio, were the two soldiers killed Thursday in the Nangarhar Province during an anti-ISIS raid.
