BERLIN - The German Foreign Ministry confirmed on Friday that a German citizen had been kidnapped in northern Nigeria.

The police commissioner in Nigeria's second city, Kano, told Reuters on Thursday gunmen had kidnapped a German national working on a construction site.

Radical Islamist sect Bokoo Haram has increasingly moved into Kano, a city of around 10 million people, from its homebase in the remote northeast. A coordinated series of gun and bomb attacks killed 186 people there last Friday.
