font size    

The body of kidnapped Turkish citizen Mustafa Semih Tufal was found on Thursday in Afghanistan, the semi-official Anatolia news agency reported.

Officials of Turkish Embassy in Kabul were quoted as saying that the body of Tufal, who was kidnapped in Afghanistan last month, was found.

Taliban militants on Tuesday shot dead Tufal, after his company failed to meet demands to leave Afghanistan.

Tufal's funeral will take place in Turkey on next Tuesday, said the officials.

On Aug. 28, Tufal was kidnapped on Kandahar-Erat highway in an armed attack while his colleague Murat Gedik, also a Turkish citizen, was killed at the scene.
