Two foreign aid workers kidnapped in Darfur

KHARTOUM, July 3 (Reuters ) - Unknown armed men kidnapped two female aid workers, one Irish and one Ugandan, in Sudan’s western Darfur region on Friday, a United Nations source said.

The men seized the women, both working for the Irish aid group GOAL, from their compound in the north Darfur town of Kutum late in the evening, the source told Reuters. A Sudanese guard was also taken but later released. (Reporting by Andrew Heavens, editing by Tim Pearce)
