Oil com­pany work­ers kid­napped in Pak­istan

The Myanmar Times - - World -

Un­known kid­nap­pers ab­ducted six Pak­istani work­ers of a Pol­ish oil and gas com­pany from the coun­try’s restive north­west, of­fi­cials said. The work­ers from Ge­ofizyka Krakow were in a con­voy at Drazinda, around 80 kilo­me­tres (50 miles) from the city of Dera Is­mail Khan when they were ap­pre­hended by the kid­nap­pers. A se­nior govern­ment of­fi­cial said that no group had yet claimed re­spon­si­bil­ity. The of­fi­cial said six Pak­istani work­ers were ac­com­pa­nied by seven guards of tribal po­lice. Around five to six peo­ple in­ter­rupted their con­voy and took away all six Pol­ish com­pany work­ers and three tribal po­lice­men. Later, they freed the tribal po­lice­men and took the oil work­ers with them.
