KABUL: Two Turkish engineers, while working on Afghanistan’s communication project, were kidnapped.
Unidentified armed persons had abducted them two days ago from the Afghan province Khost. Turkish foreign minister said that he had discussed matters relating to the kidnapping of the Turkish engineers yesterday with the Afghan officials during his visit here. At least 800 Turkish soldiers are deployed here and in the surrounding areas under Nato International Security Assistance Force.
