Body of missing pilot found in Iraq

From USAToday:

One of two pilots whose Marine Corps fighter jets were reported missing in Iraq has been found, and investigators have concluded that their planes likely collided in the air, a senior defense official said Tuesday.

U.S. officials in Baghdad said the search was continuing.

At the Pentagon, an official with access to details of the search said an emergency beacon from one of the F/A-18 jets was detected on the ground about 15 miles southwest of Karbala, in south-central Iraq. The official discussed some details on condition of anonymity because the search is not finished.

The military is only sketchy information. Since there's another pilot missing, they may not want the insurgent idiots over there to go looking for him or try to ambush those searching.
