The U.S.-led coalition said in a statement today that the bodies of the seven were retrieved on June 10 by a team of Turkmen and American experts.


The helicopter vanished from radar screens on January 20. Villagers found the wreckage, on a mountaintop in the northern province of Kapisa, only on June 1.
