European officials say two Spanish aid workers and an Italian have been kidnapped from a refugee camp in western Algeria.
Diplomatic sources said Sunday the abductions happened in the Rabuni encampment in the Algerian province of Tindouf, an area inhabited by refugees from Western Sahara, a disputed Moroccan-controlled territory.
Media reports say one of the three abductees may be injured.
There is no immediate word on the identity of the kidnappers, or any indication of a ransom demand.
Some information for this report was provided by AFP and Reuters.
