Afghan police save Iranian hostage

The Afghan border police have saved an Iranian child from the clutches of kidnappers, apprehending one person in this connection.

“The nine-year-old child named Mohammad was abducted in an area in the southeastern Iranian province of Sistan-Baluchestan three months ago and taken to a village in Nimrooz [province],” said Abd-ul-Hadi Sharifi, an official with the border police in the southwestern Afghan province of Nimrooz.

“The child was saved at a house yesterday, and a local resident named Vali-Mohammad was arrested, and a light gun was also seized from his home,” a Press TV correspondent quoted the Afghan police official as saying.

The kidnappers were holding the boy for ransom, the police official said.
