KABUL, Afghanistan — A massive air and ground search has begun for two US Navy service members who disappeared in a dangerous area of eastern Afghanistan, NATO and Afghan officials said Saturday.

The two left their compound in the Afghan capital, Kabul, in a vehicle Friday afternoon, but never returned, NATO said in a statement. Vehicles and helicopters were dispatched to search for the two, who may have been killed or captured by the Taliban in the Charkh district of the southern Logar province — about a two-hour drive south of Kabul, said district chief Samer Gul.

Elsewhere, five US troops died in separate bombings in the south, setting July on course to become the deadliest month of the nearly 9-year war for Americans.
