KABUL — One U.S. Navy service member was killed in a shootout with Taliban fighters in the eastern Afghan province of Logar and another is in insurgent custody, a Taliban spokesman and Afghan officials said Sunday.

NATO officials have not confirmed the reports and still characterize the two men as missing since they drove off from their Kabul base Friday.

On the second full day of a search for the missing Americans, Afghan officials said U.S. forces have deployed from helicopters, have set up vehicle checkpoints and were going house to house in Logar.
