American and Australian kidnapped in Kabul by five gunmen

Five gunmen wearing Afghan military uniforms have abducted an American and an Australian in the Afghan capital, Kabul, a security official has said.

The two men were taken from their SUV while driving on Sunday night on a main road near the American University of Afghanistan, Sediq Sediqqi, the spokesman for the Afghan interior ministry, said on Monday. They are believed to be university employees and were travelling between the university and their residence. No one immediately claimed responsibility for the abduction.
