NORTH OF OGDEN, Utah – A community in Utah is in mourning after its mayor,while it was developed with the National Guard. His body is scheduled to arrive in the United States on Monday night. With the two months left during his tour, the 39-year-old died Saturday, as one of his Afghan trainees shot him in an internal assault. Afghan forces killed the assailant.
Taylor is the third US soldier to be killed in an assault on confidential information in Afghanistan since July. Seventeen years after September 11, there are still some 15,000 US troops in the country – many of which have as their main task the training and counseling of Afghan forces. Nearly half of Americans from this year's American deaths in Afghanistan have reportedly been coming from suspected internal attacks, CBS News correspondent John Blackstone said.
