Two aid workers were kidnapped and two police officers killed in separate incidents in Afghanistan, officials said Thursday. Two aid workers with a Danish agency have been held hostage in Logar province, south of Kabul, since Sunday by a criminal gang, officials with the agency said.

The local workers, a driver and a skilled staffer with the Danish Assistance to Afghan Rehabilitation organization, were snatched from the Baraki Barak district while travelling to Kabul…He added that the kidnappers had not made very specific demands but the main motive behind the abduction was ransom. The aid group was holding talks with the kidnappers through local elders but it would not pay a ransom, Gapsen said.
