Three British nationals being held in Afghanistan: UK NGO


Kabul: Three British men have been detained in Afghanistan, UK non-profit group the Presidium Network said on Saturday.

The group said on Twitter it had been “working closely with two of the families”.

“We are working hard to secure consular contact with British nationals detained in Afghanistan and we are supporting families,” the UK’s foreign ministry added in a statement.

Scott Richards of the Presidium Network told Sky News: “We believe they are in good health and being well treated.

There had been “no meaningful contact” between authorities and the two men Presidium is assisting, he added.

These two men are believed to have been held in Afghanistan since January, and it is not known how long the third man has been held for, according to British NGO.

Media reports named the men as charity medic Kevin Cornwell, 53, and YouTube star Miles Routledge.
