German-Afghan believed kidnapped in Kabul

BERLIN (Reuters) – A German-Afghan citizen has gone missing in Kabul and German officials believe he has been kidnapped, the Foreign Ministry in Berlin said on Wednesday.

“It is to be assumed that the German-Afghan has been kidnapped,” a Foreign Ministry spokesman told a regular government news conference.

He gave no further details other than that the man was working in Afghanistan at the time and officials are trying to get him released.

Germany has about 3,500 troops in Afghanistan and Foreign Minister Frank-Walter Steinmeier visited the country about two weeks ago.
