An Australian woman working with a non-governmental organization (NGO) has been kidnapped in Afghanistan’s capital, Kabul, Australian officials say.
“The Australian Embassy in Kabul is making urgent inquiries into reports an Australian has been kidnapped in Kabul,” a spokesman for the Australian Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade said on Sunday.
The Australian ministry refrained from disclosing more information “due to the nature of the incident.”
However local media have said she was abducted at gunpoint in the Qala-i-Fatullah area in the center of the city on Saturday.
No groups or individuals have made remands or claimed responsibility yet.
