Kabul, 6 July (AKI) - Twently-four people working as de-miners in western Afghanistan have been kidnapped by Taliban militants, according to news reports.

The kidnapping occurred while the de-miners were at work. They are all employed by the Afghan non-government organisation Demining Agency for Afghanistan.
