Pakistan police: Kenyan aid worker disappears, suspected kidnapped
By The Associated Press

KARACHI, Pakistan (AP) ' Pakistani police say a Kenyan aid worker has disappeared and is suspected of having been kidnapped in the country's south.

Police officer Shahab Akbar Kolachi said late Monday the man was working for an international NGO, helping the southern Sindh province recover from devastating 2010 floods. Kolachi did not provide the man's name.

The officer said police believe the man was kidnapped Monday while traveling from the city of Sukkur to the district of Dadu. His vehicle was found abandoned between the two areas. His colleagues tried to call him, but his phone was turned off.

Kidnappings for ransom are common in Pakistan by both criminals and Islamist militants.

Gunmen seized two aid workers, an Italian and a German, in the central Pakistan town of Multan last week.
