Islamabad, Sun, 12 Feb 2012 ANI

Islamabad, Feb 11 (ANI): Two foreign aid workers kidnapped from Multan in January are being held by the Pakistan Taliban near the border with Afghanistan, a senior militant commander has said.


"The two NGO (non-governmental organisation) workers who were kidnapped in Multan nearly a month ago are in our custody near the border. We haven't made any demands yet," The Express Tribune quoted a senior commander of the Pakistan Taliban, as saying.


"They are in good health," he said. German and an Italian citizen were kidnapped from their house in Multan on January 19, according to local officials.


The foreigners reportedly work for an aid group, Welthungerhilfe, which helped victims of the devastating 2010 floods. They have been identified as German national Bernd Johannes, 70, and Italian national Giovanni, 24.


Bernd had arrived in Multan on January 11, while Giovanni arrived on January 17 from Islamabad. (ANI)
