Navy SEAL death in Yemen raid not undergoing larger review | Stars & Stripes

A more in-depth investigation into the death of the Navy SEAL during a controversial U.S. military raid in Yemen has not been ordered, despite being announced earlier this week, defense officials said Friday.

On Monday, the White House and Defense Department said that three separate military investigations were underway into the Jan. 29 raid, including a more in-depth review into the death of Senior Chief Petty Officer William “Ryan” Owens.

However, as of Friday, the commander-directed investigation, known as a “15-6,” had not been requested.
