The Pentagon says it has recovered additional remains of Army Sgt.

Johnson and three other American soldiers - Staff Sgt. Bryan Black, Staff Sgt. Jeremiah Johnson and Staff Sgt. Dustin Wright - were killed in an October 4 when militants believed to be linked to the Islamic State ambushed their patrol, consisting of 12 USA troops and 30 Nigerien forces.

The Pentagon said Tuesday that a military investigation team found additional remains of Johnson on November 12 at the site where his body had been recovered a month earlier.

President Donald Trump's handling of condolence messages to the families of the dead USA soldiers has been criticized by lawmakers in Washington and has raised the profile of the deadly incident.

Johnson, 25, of Miami Gardens, Florida, was killed with three other members of the Army's 3rd Special Forces Group in an October 4 ambush in Niger.

CBS News and The Washington Post have reported eyewitnesses of the aftermath disclosing his hands were tied. Johnson's death in particular is the subject of intense inquiry amid revelations that it took almost 48 hours to discover his body after the fatal ambush.

Several US military officials caution the local reports are not yet verified.

The Green Beret-led team was traveling with 30 Nigerien soldiers when they were attacked by approximately 50 ISIS-affiliated fighters armed with rocket propelled grenades, mortars and heavy machine guns.

During the subsequent gun battle, which lasted for hours, four United States soldiers were killed and two were wounded.

Two more American troops were wounded and five Nigerien troops were also killed in the incident. The department continues to conduct a detailed and thorough investigation into the deaths of Staff Sgt. Bryan C. Black, Staff Sgt. Jeremiah W. Johnson, Staff Sgt. Dustin M. Wright, and Sgt.

The U.S. military previously revealed that its investigation will likely not be complete until January 2018. Nigerien, U.S., and French forces searched for Johnson's body for almost 48 hours before it was found.
