The International Committee of the Red Cross said Monday that one of its teams was missing in strife-torn northern Mali, but it was not clear whether they had been kidnapped.
"We can confirm that the ICRC lost contact with one of its vehicles, with five people on board," ICRC spokesman Alexis Heeb told AFP.
The vehicle, which was carrying four ICRC staff members and a veterinarian from another aid organisation, went missing Saturday on the road between the towns of Kidal and Gao, Heeb said.
All five individuals were from Mali, he said.
