Afghanistan: 5 aid workers kidnapped

Kabul, Afghanistan (CNN) — Two women and three men that were working for an aid group were kidnapped in a remote area of Afghanistan this week, authorities said.

The women and their three Afghan colleagues worked for Medair, a non-governmental organization, said Abdul Marouf Rasekh, a spokesman for the governor of northeastern Badakhshan province.

The aid workers were helping to bring food to children and pregnant women in the remote and mountainous area when they were kidnapped Tuesday, Rasekh said.

The victims had not informed Afghan security forces about their trip to the area, Rasekh said

Afghanistan, good enough?

“Our initial reports from the area show that they were taken to a nearby district called Shahr Buzurg, but our investigation is going on,” Rasekh said.

The kidnappers have not contacted the government or the aid group to to say why they kidnapped the aid workers, Rasekh added.
