Bangladesh is appealing for the release of an aid worker kidnapped just south of the capital, Kabul, Afghanistan on Saturday.
Foreign Adviser Dr Iftekhar Ahmed Chowdhury in a statement issued on Monday expressed concern about the incident. He said the abducted man's only mission in Afghanistan is humanitarian. The Bangladeshi national Nurul Islam was taken from his BRAC office in Logar province by unidentified armed men.
