Kidnapped UNICEF Workers Freed in Pakistan

The United Nations said Two UN Children’s Fund (UNICEF) workers kidnapped in Pakistan’s southern city of Karachi have been freed.

According to Tasnim News Agency citing police officials, the Pakistani men were on their way to a bus terminal to pick up relatives when they were taken on Thursday.

UNICEF said the police had led the investigation and that the men were safe and well. No further details about the incident were given.

The port city of Karachi is Pakistan’s financial heart and home to 18 million people. Many neighborhoods are considered Taliban strongholds, including the area of Shorab Goth, which is near where the men were taken.
