Red Cross mission workers abducted in northwest Syria

Several aid workers with a Red Cross mission in Syria have been kidnapped by gunmen in the country’s northwest.

State media reported that the gunmen fired on the aid convoy, claiming they came from an “terrorist group” – a term which usually refers to rebels trying to topple President al-Assad’s government.

The International Committee of the Red Cross has confirmed that six of its staff and one Syrian Red Crescent volunteer were abducted near Idlib, on their way back to Damascus after delivering medical supplies.
