KABULinfo-icon (PANinfo-icon): The Talibaninfo-icon on Tuesday confirmed they had set free five abducted Bangladeshi workers in northern Balkh province.

The insurgents abducted eight Bangladeshi citizens working for a foreign firm eight months ago. One of them was killed during the abduction and two others were released soon after their kidnapping, but the remaining five were held captive.

In a statement, the Taliban said the Bangladeshis worked for a Turkish company and were captured by them.
