An Afghan refugee has been charged in Germany with murdering an American soldier while fighting with the Taliban in his homeland.

Identified only as Abdol Moghada S., 20, he is also charged with the attempted murder of two other US troops wounded in the same ambush.

He was arrested at an asylum seekers home near to Traunstein in February this year and will stand trial in Munich in the autumn.

Moghada is alleged to have joined the Taliban in the Logar province in 2013 and carried out attacks on military convoys in 2013 and 2014. The charges stem from the latter.

Prosecutors haven’t identified the soldiers who were attacked, but US service newspaper Stars and Stripes reports the only U.S. service member killed during that time in Logar province was Pfc. Christian Chandler.

Moghada is alleged to have joined the Taliban in the Logar province in 2013 and carried out attacks on military convoys in 2013 and 2014.

The charges stem from the latter.

Prosecutors haven’t identified the soldiers who were attacked, but US service newspaper Stars and Stripes reports the only U.S. service member killed during that time in Logar province was Pfc. Christian Chandler.

Chandler, 20, was a Texas native assigned to Fort Drum’s 10th Mountain Division 3rd Brigade Combat Team.

At the time of his death, Fort Drum officials said Pfc. Chandler died when his unit was attacked in the Logar province.

Moghada fled Afghanistan in 2015 and sought political asylum, claiming he was in danger because he had deserted the Taliban.

As well as the murder and attempted murder charges he is facing further indictments for violating the War Weapons Control Act and Taliban membership.

And he is further accused of transporting to Kabul, on several occasions in 2014 and 2015, bombs made by the commander of his local Taliban unit that could be detonated by remote control.

German prosecutors said He was trained in the use of weapons and passed a shooting course.

‘He received, along with a fully automatic rapid-fire Kalashnikov rifle, a Russian pistol and two hand grenades,’ according to the federal attorney’s office.

He adopted the nom de guerre Omar and prosecutors said that in the ambush where the American soldier was killed ‘he gave numerous shots from his rapid-fire rifle in the attack on a convoy of eight to nine American armoured vehicles.’
