Official: UN air crew kidnapped in Darfur

A UN spokesman says three members of an air crew working for the World Food Program have been kidnapped in the troubled Sudanese region of Darfur.
Chris Cycmanick, the spokesman for the joint UN-African Union peacekeeping mission, said the men were abducted Wednesday night about 45 miles (75 kilometers) southeast of Geneina, capital of West Darfur province.
He had no confirmation of their nationality but the Arabic news channel Arabiya described them as Bulgarian.
