International Committee for the Red Cross (ICRC) in Sudan's Darfur region says armed men have kidnapped a French aid worker.
The ICRC named the kidnapped man as Gauthier Lefevre and said he was snatched in West Darfur state near the border with Chad. The agency said he was travelling in one of two clearly marked ICRC vehicles.
Darfur has seen many kidnappings this year, mostly by young men demanding ransom money. Two aid workers from Irish agency Goal were released this week after over 100 days in captivity. Two UN-African Union peacekeepers are still being held.
