Massive hunt as gunmen kidnap Kenya aid workersBy AFRICAREVIEW.COM | Thursday, October 13 2011 at 16:03
Kenya's security agencies have mounted a massive search for aid workers kidnapped by gunmen suspected to be from war-torn Somalia.
Police sources in Nairobi identified the victims as the two international aid workers from Doctors Without Borders and their two Kenyan colleagues. They were working at Daadab refugee camp in Kenya's North Eastern Province.
The sources at the Vigilance House police headquarters said that the kidnappers struck at around 2pm East Africa Time.
Two choppers, disclosed the police sources, have been deployed to help trace the hostages. However, poor visibility caused by heavy rainfall, was hindering the operation.
