Taliban claim seizing Canadian citizen

Feb 27, 2011 - 14:37

GHAZNI CITY (PANinfo-icon): The Talibaninfo-icon insurgents claimed on Sunday seizing a Canadian national in southern Ghazni province.

Rutherford Colin Mackenzie, a Toronto resident, was collecting "exclusive intelligence information", a Taliban spokesman told Pajhwok Afghan News.

Documents recovered from the captive contained secret reports, Zabihullah Mujahid said, adding they had been contacted by a Canadian delegation.

There was no breakthrough at the talks, the rebel spokesman said, promising a video of the man would be released soon to media representatives.

When contacted, Ghazni Governor Musa Akbarzada and police chief, Zarawar Zahid, said they were unawareness about the Canadian's seizure by the Taliban.
