Taliban kidnap 170 passengers from buses in Afghanistan’s north, official says

KABUL: Taliban insurgents kidnapped 170 passengers after stopping three buses in Afghanistan’s northern Kunduz province, a government official said on Monday.

Esmatullah Muradi, a spokesman for the Kunduz governor, said the kidnapping happened on Monday morning when three passenger buses were coming from Takhar province to the capital, Kabul.

“The buses were stopped by the Taliban fighters, passengers were forced to step down and they have been taken to an undisclosed location,” he said.
