The Latest: Marine killed by Afghan bomb comes home to US

BOSTON, Mass. (AP) -- The body of a U.S. Marine killed in a suicide bombing in Afghanistan has returned home to Massachusetts on the 20th anniversary of the attacks that led to the war.

Sgt. Johanny Rosario Pichardo was among the U.S. service members and Afghans killed in the Aug. 26 bombing near the Kabul airport.

Her body arrived Saturday at Boston's Logan International Airport.

People in Rosario Pichardo's hometown of Lawrence lined the streets and waved flags at a vehicle procession of police, firefighters and others accompanying her casket to a funeral home.

A public wake is planned Tuesday.
