Taliban set free 4 aid workers in Faryab

MAIMANA (PANinfo-icon): Four employees of a French organisation have been released by their abductors after tribal elders intervened, two days after the abduction in northern Faryab province, an official said on Monday.

The Agency for Technical Cooperation and Development (ACTED) employees were kidnapped from the Almar district and were released as a result of tribal elders' mediation on Tuesday, Mohammad Omar, the district chief, told Pajhwok Afghan News.

The Talibaninfo-icon did not disrupt development projects in the district, but they kidnapped the employees after a verbal clash with them, he said.

Ahmad Javid, provincial head of the organisation, confirmed the release, saying their employees had been released without any deal.

The French organisation works on healthinfo-icon and educationinfo-icon issues.
