Three Red Cross employees were abducted in southern Yemen

The three Red Cross employees who were abducted while travelling in the governorate of Lahj, Yemen, include a female staff of the International Committee of the Red Cross, her Yemeni driver and an employee of the Yemeni Red Crescent.

At the moment of their abduction, the three were delivering food to refugees, said Marcal Izard, a Geneva-based ICRS spokesperson, the Associated Press reports.

Anonymous sources said that the country’s military is negotiating the release of the aid workers. Apparently the three were abducted by the Southern Movement, a group seeking independence for southern Yemen.

Other aid workers were kidnapped in the country in May. They were released on November 14.
