Swiss woman abducted in Darfur: Swiss foreign ministry

AFP  |  Geneva 

A Swiss woman, reportedly working for an aid organisation, has been abducted in the conflict-torn Darfur region of Sudan, Switzerland's foreign ministry said today.

The Swiss foreign ministry told AFP in an email it was "aware of the case of a Swiss woman kidnapped in Sudan (Darfur)."

"Our local representatives are in contact with the local authorities," it said, without providing further details about the woman's identity or the circumstances surrounding the kidnapping.
