An al-Qaeda affiliated group may be behind the kidnapping of five people in Syria, including a Swedish citizen, who were working in the region with Doctors Without Borders (MSF).
The five people were taken on Thursday night from a house they were sharing “allegedly for questioning” said MSF spokesperson Michael Goldfarb.
However, they have not been heard from since sparking suggestions they may have been kidnapped.
Information from Doctors Without Borders (MSF) has been sparse with officials declining to go into details about the missing personnel.
“We can confirm that our personnel who have disappeared are expatriates of Belgian, Danish, Peruvian, Swedish and Swiss nationalities,” an MSF spokeswoman said in a brief statement to the AFP news agency.
The spokesperson defended their decision not to release any further information, such as the gender of the personnel, saying that “discretion is crucial for the security of our colleagues.”
