Two Germans missing in Afghanistan: German ForMin

BERLIN (Reuters) - Two Germans have gone missing in Afghanistan and may have been kidnapped, German Foreign Minister Guido Westerwelle said on Tuesday.

"I have to confirm that two Germans are missing and I cannot exclude the possibility that they are victims of a kidnapping," Westerwelle said at a news conference broadcast on television.

German officials were working with the relevant authorities in Afghanistan on the incident, he added.
