Three Foreign Workers Abducted, Killed In Kabul

Police in Kabul have recovered the bodies of three foreign nationals who were abducted and killed in the Afghan capital, local officials say.

The three foreigners include an Indian national, a Malaysian, and a citizen of Macedonia, Interior Ministry spokesman Nusrtat Rahimi told RFE/RL on August 2.

The Kabul police chief's spokesman, Hashmat Stanekzia, said the bodies were left in Mussahi, a volatile area of the city.

"At this stage we think it is a terrorist incident," he added.

No group has so far claimed responsibility for the abductions and killing.

A police officer, Jan Aga, was quoted as saying that the three foreigners worked as cooks at the Kabul airport.
