Gunmen kidnap German national from Kabul

Gunmen kidnap German national from Kabul

Aug 17, 2015 - 11:09

KABUL (Pajhwok): Unidentified gunmen on Monday kidnapped a German national from 10th police district on the outskirts of Taimani Wat locality in capital Kabul, police said.

Brig. Gen. Humayun Aini, the 119 police helpline chief at the Ministry of Interior, told Pajhwok Afghan News that the abducted woman was working with the GIZ, the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit.

GIZ has supported Afghanistan's reconstruction since 2002. Aini said that investigations had been underway and he had no details at this time to share with media.

A security official in the area, speaking on condition of anonymity, told Pajhwok Afghan News the German lady was abducted at a distance of 10-meters from her office on 7th street of Taimani locality by unidentified gunmen.

Faridullah, a shopkeeper on Taimani 7th street, said: “I was in the shop that I heard someone is kidnapped. When I came out of the shop I saw two gunmen who had broken the glasses of a Hilux car and took the lady to their Corolla Model Car.”

He said the lady was screaming but one gunman put his hand on her mouth to shut her. When the GIZ organisation guards came to the scene, he added, the gunmen had fled the area.

Senior security officials at the scent did not provide any details.

No group has claimed responsibility of her abduction so far.
