Two journalists, an Australian and a Canadian, were abducted today by armed men near the Somali capital Mogadishu, a police source and a witness said.
"They were taken under the threat of firearms. It was an abduction," a security official at a hotel south of the capital told AFP, speaking on condition of anonymity.
A police officer confirmed the abduction on the road between Mogadishu and Afgoye, about 25 kilometres to the west.
The two journalists were to visit a refugee camp at Afgoye, the sources added.
