A thought should be spared for eight power plant workers who were kidnapped in northern Afghanistan earlier this month. Seven were Indian engineers and the eighth an Afghani, all of them working for the state-owned power company Da Afghanistan Breshna Sherkat, a spokesperson for which said the company is working to ensure their workers’ release. It is not known whether a ransom will be demanded, but kidnaps for ransoms are a common occurrence in the country.
