US military officials told the CNN television that the rescued soldier managed to “evade the enemy” and has been successfully rescued by US forces.
  
CNN reported that there was no word on the fate of three other soldiers who were part of the same special forces reconnaissance team missing since suspected Taliban rebels shot down a US helicopter during an attempt to extract the team five days ago.

The MH-47 Chinook was downed on Tuesday by what is believed to be a rocket propelled grenade, killing 16 military personnel, including eight elite US Navy SEALs.
