Two Doctors without Borders staff kidnapped

Two Doctors without Borders staff members were kidnapped Sunday in Somalia.

A three-car convoy of Doctors without Borders workers was traveling from Rabbure to Hudurin in southwestern Somalia when gunmen seized the group, according to CNN.

There were approximately 25 gunmen traveling in two trucks, according to a source at the site and reported by The Canadian Press.

An aid worker who did not want to be identified told The Canadian Press that the Somalian staff who were with the two hostages were released.

The nationality of one hostage is European, but the other is still unknown, The Canadian Press reported.

Rabbure is in the Bakole region, which is under the control of the group al-Shabaab. The group al-Shabaab is considered a terrorist organization by the U.S. State Department, according to CNN.
