   KABUL, Afghanistan (AP) -- A U.S. military official says the American soldier
accused of killings 16 Afghan civilians on a shooting spree has been flown out
of the country.
   The official said Wednesday that the soldier has been flown to a "pretrial
confinement facility" in another country but did not provide further details. The
official spoke on condition of anonymity because the information had not yet
been publicly announced.
   The official did not provide a reason for the move, saying only that the
decision had been made to continue legal proceedings outside of Afghanistan.
