US citizen living in Afghanistan kidnapped on way to work: police

By MICHAEL EDISON HAYDEN and ALEEM AGHA - Jun 18, 2017, 12:01 PM ET

An American citizen who is living in Afghanistan was kidnapped on his way to work on Sunday, Kabul police said.

The kidnapping took place in the Karte Char area of Kabul, according to Mohammad Almas, the head of the Kabul police's Crime Investigation Department (CID).

Almas said that the kidnappers posed in Afghan security forces uniforms in order to trick the victim into stopping his vehicle.

Police originally said that the man, whose name has not been released, was working on a World Bank project with the Afghan Ministry of Agriculture. But later on Sunday Alex Ferguson, a spokesman for the World Bank, denied the claim.
