A Thoughtful, Analytical Approach to NGO Security

Sixteen humanitarian deminers kidnapped in Afghanistan

Sixteen humanitarian deminers from the Mine Detection and Dog Centre in Afghanistan were seized by unidentified gunmen on Saturday, 5 July. The group was taken while travelling along the Logar to Gardez road. So far, there have been no claims of responsibility.

The Logar to Gardez road is considered unsafe for travel by many NGOs, who travel the route only when essential and in unmarked vehicles. Last August
five IRC staff were killed in an ambush on the same road.
