(London) Three Britons are being held by the Taliban in Afghanistan, a British NGO, The Presidium Network, announced on Saturday evening, adding that it was “working closely” with two of the families.
“We are working to establish consular contact with British nationals detained in Afghanistan and supporting the families,” the UK Foreign Office said in a statement.
Scott Richards, a member of The Presidium Network, told Sky News: “To our knowledge we believe they are in good health and well cared for. »
“We have no reason to believe that they were subjected to any ill-treatment such as torture and we are told that they are doing as well as can be expected under such circumstances,” he said. He specifies.
There has been “no meaningful contact” between authorities and the two men Presidium is assisting, Mr. Richards added.
Two of the men have been held by the Taliban since January. It is not known how long the third man has been detained.
