Efforts launched to rescue kidnapped professors

Efforts launched to rescue kidnapped professors

Aug 08, 2016 - 10:38

KABUL (Pajhwok): Security forces have launched efforts for the recovery of two professors of the American University in Kabul who were kidnapped Sunday evening, an official said on Monday.

The academics -- one American and one Australian -- were kidnapped at gunpoint near the university in the Darul Aman neighbourhood of the central capital, a senior security official said.

No one has claimed responsibility for the latest kidnap incident yet, but law-enforcement personnel are making efforts to find a clue to the professors.

More than 1700 male and female students are enrolled at the American university -- a non-profit institution that is popular for the capital elite.
