Two Germans have been reported missing after setting off to mountain climbing in the northern Parwan province of the war-torn Afghanistan.
Provincial police chief ,General Sher Ahmad Maladani, says the German mountain climbers have been disappeared near the city of Salang Pass located in Parwan province on Friday, a Press TV correspondent reported.
They have reportedly left their driver to go hiking but never returned.
The two Germans could have been abducted and a massive search by Afghan police, army and intelligence forces is under way.
Dozens of foreigners have been kidnapped in Afghanistan since the US-led invasion in 2001 ousted the Taliban from power, but most of them have been released after the payment of a ransom.
Germany has been a major contributor to the NATO-led International Security Assistance Force in Afghanistan and currently has some 5,200 troops stationed in the country.
