Aid workers kidnapped in Ghana

Two Canadian women working for an aid agency were kidnapped at a golf club in Ghana’s second city Kumasi this week, police said.
The women, 19 and 20, were volunteering for the charity Youth Challenge International, according to a police statement. It did not name them or say when they were taken from the Royal Golf Club in Kumasi.
Canada’s foreign ministry said it informed the women’s families and was working with local authorities.
Kidnappings are common across West Africa and are often carried out for ransom.
