Taliban Kidnap International Red Cross Staff

by Dr. D ~ September 27th, 2007

The Taliban in Afghanistan have kidnapped four people who are members of the International Committee of the Red Cross. A spokesman for the insurgents claimed that they were unaware of who these people really were and plan to release them:

“Our mujahideen detained the Red Cross workers in Wardak province without knowing they were ICRC staff. We have nothing against the Red Cross and we are going to release them soon.”

It will be interesting to see how quickly they follow through with the release and how the workers were treated by their hosts. At least two of the hostages are said to be Afghani nationals. Despite all the assurances from the Taliban spokesman, the Red Cross officials are quite concerned about the safety of their members.               *Top
