Taleban 'kidnap four Albanians'
Taleban militants have kidnapped four Albanians and their Afghan guards in the southern Afghan city of Kandahar, a Taleban spokesman has said.

Qazi Yousuf, who claims to speak on behalf of the Taleban, told reporters that their fate would be decided by the Taleban's supreme leader Mullah Omar.

Afghan officials in Kandahar say they are investigating the claim.

There have been several incidents in recent months involving the kidnapping of foreigners in Afghanistan.
