Kidnappers Free Afghan Health Workers In Kabul

KABUL -- Kidnappers have released a group of Afghan health workers abducted recently in Kabul, RFE/RL's Radio Free Afghanistan reports.

Afghan Health Minister Said Mohammad Amine Fathami told RFA that the abductors planned to transfer the hostages to Pakistan for unknown reasons.

In the past two weeks, unknown assailants have blown up two newly built health-care centers in eastern Afghanistan.

Another newly reconstructed hospital was severely damaged in southern Kandahar Province in January.
