"Twelve Iranian engineers kidnapped in western Afghanistan have been released along with three Afghan colleagues, police and officials in the two countries said on Wednesday. The men, who were working on a road construction project, were snatched at gunpoint on Monday in the Post-i-Road district of Farah province, which borders Iran. ... Taliban spokesman Yusuf Ahmadi told AFP Monday that the insurgent group had no knowledge of the most recent kidnapping, although the militants have been responsible for similar abductions in the past."
