Gunmen have siezed a Dutch aid worker in Afghanistan

Gunmen have seized a Dutch aid worker and his Afghan driver in northern Afghanistan.

Four men took the pair out of their car and drove them west toward Kunduz province.

A Dutch Foreign Ministry spokesman confirmed a Dutch man and his driver had been kidnapped, but did not release their names.

In August, 10 members of a Christian medical aid team - six Americans, two Afghans, one German and a Briton - were ambushed and later killed by gunmen in neighbouring Badakhshan province.
