The International Committee of the Red Cross said on Saturday that five of its Afghan staff were kidnapped by a local armed group two days ago in the western province of Herat. According to a local official, in a separate incident, the Taliban abducted 13 people on Friday who had been working to clear mines in central Ghazni province and were traveling to the capital. The latest spate of kidnappings underscores the ongoing dangers faced by both Afghans and foreigners working for development and aid groups across the country. According to the United Nations, last year, there were more than 230 attacks on the humanitarian sector in Afghanistan.
