Cousin had to retrieve Afghan reporter's body after raid

The death of Afghan journalist Sultan Munadi, killed by a volley of bullets as British commandos sought to free him and a New York Times colleague from insurgent kidnappers, was a source of anger for the Afghan press corps that's emerged in the eight years since Taliban rule ended. Journalists demanded an investigation into whether Taliban or British bullets killed Munadi and why his body was left behind after the raid.
