German aid worker ‘being held in central Somalia’


A German aid worker who was abducted early last month from Mogadishu is reportedly being held in the Mudug region of central Somalia.

Reports are saying that the woman is in the hands of armed men in an area about three miles (5km) from Hobyo district.

One of the residents of the area where the aid worker – a nurse, who was working with the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) – is being held told the media she was in the hands of about 10 abductors.

He says the abductors have built tents in a place that consists of hills and caves.

According to the IRCR, the nurse had been delivering first aid training for local responders and caring for Somalis at hospitals, health clinics and places of detention when she was seized.
