Afghan official: Kidnapped German aid worker rescued

An Afghan official says a German aid worker kidnapped more than a month ago in northern Afghanistan has been freed.

Sawar Husseini, spokesman for the Kunduz province police chief, says the man, whose name has not been made public, was rescued in a police operation early Friday morning.

The man works for the German development agency GIZ and is believed to have disappeared while driving across the province in April.
