HELSINKI (AFP) – Finland yesterday said one of its nationals who was kidnapped in an attack on an international guest house in Afghanistan has been freed. A German aid worker and an Afghan guard were killed and a Finnish woman was abducted as gunmen stormed the guest house in Kabul in May. “Kidnapped Finnish national in Afghanistan has been released and is safe,” the Foreign Affairs Ministry of Finland said on its Twitter account. No group has claimed responsibility for the attack on the guest house run by Swedish charity Operation Mercy in the heart of the Afghan capital. Operation Mercy works with local Afghan communities in areas such as reducing infant mortality and women’s empowerment. The Finnish woman’s identity was not disclosed.
