FEROZKOH (Pajhwok): Five workers on a school construction project have been kidnapped by Talibaninfo-icon in western Ghorinfo-icon province, an official said on Wednesday.

Ghor governor’s spokesman Abdul Hai Khatibi told Pajhwok Afghan News the men working on the construction of the Noorak Middle School in Pasaband district were abducted late on Wednesday.

He said that the motive behind the incident remained unclear. The abductees included four workers and an architect, he said, without naming the construction company.

Noorak area is currently under Taliban's control. About a year ago, four workers of a construction firm had been kidnapped before being killed by militants in Chaharsada district of the province.
