An Italian freelance photographer and his assistant were abducted in southern Afghanistan, officials said Sunday. Gabriele Torsello and his Afghan translator were abducted by armed men on Saturday as they were driving from Lashkar Gah, the capital of the southern Helmand province, toward neighboring Kandahar, an Afghan official in Helmand said. The two were in their car when they were abducted, said the official, who spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to speak to the media.
