A missing-persons poster, with pictures of nine men who their relatives say were last seen being arrested by U.S. special operations forces, is held by a villager in Maidan Shahr, Afghanistan on Sunday, March 10, 2013. The posters were up for several months, but taken down after the bodies were found buried in a field near a U.S. base in Narkh district, about 15 kilometers (about 10 miles) from Maidan Shahr, capital of the Wardak province. An Afghan who once translated for the U.S. Special Forces was arrested on allegations of widespread torture and murder in connection with the disappearance and deaths of at least nine Afghans, the Afghan intelligence confirmed Monday, July 8, 2013.
