KABUL (Reuters) - A German aid worker kidnapped in Afghanistan in August has been released safely, the German development agency GIZ said in a statement.
“We are relieved and happy that our staff member is free again,” a statement from the organization said.
No details were released regarding the kidnapping, which occurred in downtown Kabul on Aug. 17.
The kidnapping was one of a series of attacks on foreign targets in the Afghan capital since the withdrawal of international troops from most combat operations last year.
