Taliban Say They Have Canadian Missing in Afghanistan

A Canadian man is missing in Afghanistan, Canadian officials said on Sunday, with the Taliban claiming they had captured him in a volatile central province because he was a spy, according to Reuters. A spokeswoman for the Department of Foreign Affairs and International Trade in Ottawa said the man had travelled to Afghanistan as a tourist.
Kidnapping has become a lucrative business in Afghanistan in recent years, as part of the Taliban-led insurgency but also by criminal groups with largely financial motives.
