Kidnapped IMC driver freed

JALALABAD (PANinfo-icon): An international humanitarian organisation's driver was released a day after being kidnapped in eastern Kunar province, an official said on Thursday.

Working for the Internatioanl Medical Corps (IMC) at a clinic in the Wanat Waigal district of Nuristan proivnce, the driver was kidnapped in the Nanglam area of Kunar province on Tuesday.

The captors freed the driver late on Wednesday but his ambulance was yet to be returned, Nurisrtan Public Healthinfo-icon Director Dr. Matiullah told Pajhwok Afghan News. Tribal elders were making efforts to find the vehicle, he said.

IMC was founded after the Soviet invasion in 1979 when all but 200 of Afghanistaninfo-icon's 1,500 doctors had been executed, imprisoned or exiled, and all relief agencies ordered out of the impoverished country.
