2 staffers of Korean hospital kidnapped in Karachi


Gunmen abducted two Pakistani Christians working for a South Korean-run hospital in Karachi on Wednesday.
Four armed men stopped a car taking the employees to work in the western neighbourhood of Orangi, local police station chief Sabir Khan said.
“They asked the occupants: ‘Who is Korean among you?’ They replied ‘none of us’,” the police officer said.
“However they snatched two hospital employees – a computer operator and an administration assistant, and fled in a car,” he said.
No foreigners were in the vehicle that was stopped, Khan said.
“We have sent teams to track down the kidnappers and recover the staff members,” he added.
The hospital is run by a South Korean charity, Khan said. Korean doctors work at the hospital and live in the premises, the policeman said.
