Afghan security forces freed German woman in Kabul

Afghan police early Monday morning freed a German female abducted Saturday, the Afghan Interior Ministry in Kabul.

The woman, identified as 31-year-old Christina M, was abducted Saturday by four armed men as she was leaving a restaurant in western Kabul in the presence of her husband.

A spokeswoman for the German Foreign Ministry in Berlin confirmed the report of the abductee's release.

"She is in the safe custody of the German embassy in Kabul," said the spokeswoman, who declined to comment on the health of Christina M, who is believed to be pregnant, reports Deutsche Welle.

In Berlin , a spokeswoman for Germany 's Foreign Ministry confirmed the woman was "in safety at the German Embassy" in Kabul.

On Sunday, Afghan television broadcast what it said was video of the woman calling for the release of unspecified prisoners, while being prompted by a man on what to say.

The woman on the tape identifies herself as Christina Meier and holds up what appeared to be a German identification card with her name on it. Officials have not confirmed the woman's identity.

Police have said Taliban militants were not behind her brazen daytime abduction, even though the group has been linked to the recent kidnappings of 23 South Koreans and two German men, reports Canada East.
