Armed tribesmen kidnapped a family of five Germans in eastern Yemen on Wednesday, local security officials and the German government said. The five, who were all members of one family, were traveling as part of an organized trip to Yemen when their vehicle "was delayed," Foreign Ministry spokesman Martin Jaeger said. The tour operator reported them missing, he said. "The foreign office is in contact with all the relevant authorities and is trying to find out where this family could be," Jaeger said. "We will make every effort to bring this family to safety as quickly as possible."
