Two Czech Women Tourists Kidnapped While Traveling in Pakistan

March 14 (Bloomberg) -- Two Czech women were kidnapped by armed men in Pakistan yesterday while traveling through the western province of Baluchistan, the Czech Foreign Ministry said.

The two women, who were accompanied by an armed guide, were ambushed by a group of assailants about 100 kilometers (60 miles) after crossing the border from Iran and taken to an unknown place, spokeswoman Johana Grohova said when reached by telephone. The local guide was disarmed and later released, she said.

A police team was dispatched from Quetta, the region’s capital, Grohova said. No group has claimed responsibility for the kidnapping, she said.
