BAMYAN, Afghanistan, Aug. 21 (UPI) -- Gunmen kidnapped two foreign aid workers in Afghanistan's Bamyan province, security officials said Wednesday.

So far no group has claimed responsibility for the kidnappings.

Razaq said preliminary reports indicate the two workers are citizens of the United States.

Afghan police are searching.
