KABUL - A Canadian man is missing in Afghanistan, Canadian officials said on Sunday, with the Taliban claiming they had captured him in a volatile central province because he was a spy.

A spokeswoman for the Department of Foreign Affairs and International Trade in Ottawa said the man had travelled to Afghanistan as a tourist.

"Canadian officials are working with Afghan authorities to assist the family in securing the safe release of their loved one," the spokeswoman said in a statement emailed to Reuters in Kabul.
