3 Journalists Kidnapped In Afghanistan Are Set Free

Three journalists for Britain’s Guardian newspaper were released unharmed on Wednesday after being kidnapped last week by an armed gang in a rugged and remote part of eastern Afghanistan, the newspaper said. The journalists, Ghaith Abdul-Ahad, who is Iraqi, and two Afghan colleagues had spent six days in cold and snowy conditions surviving on soup, tea and bread, the newspaper reported. It credited efforts by representatives and intermediaries in Afghanistan but did not release details, including the names of the two Afghans, to “avoid compromising the security of those involved, particularly those remaining in Afghanistan.”
