ASADABAD (AFP) - Suspected militants have kidnapped the governor of a volatile Afghan district near the border with Pakistan, a senior local official said Saturday. Musafir Khan Qayumzai, district governor of Ghazi Abad, was snatched Friday along with his son and two bodyguards, said Kunar provincial governor Sayed Fazlullah Waahedi. "When he was en route to his office from home, he was taken out of his car by unidentified men and was taken away," Waahedi said. He added that local officials have now "taken steps to release the district governor through tribal mediation and negotiation with the Taliban."
