KANDAHAR CITY (Pajhwok): Talibaninfo-icon militants kidnapped four passengers in Maiwand district of southern Kandahar province on Tuesday, local officials said.

Aziz Ahmad Azizi, Kandahar governor’s spokesman, told Pajhwok Afghan News the four men belonged to Paktia and Badghis provinces and they were visiting their friends serving in police ranks in Maiwand district.

These men were returning to their provinces when the Taliban stopped them on their way on Tuesday morning, he said.

However, Taliban did not comment yet on the issue.

Two months back, Taliban had seized 43 passengers of a transportation company, but they were released after a few days of their detention with the rebels.
