(MENAFN) The International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) has appealed for information on the location of three employees abducted in Syria over five years ago and last known to have been held by Islamic State.
The independent aid agency identified the three as Louisa Akavi, a nurse from New Zealand, and Syrian drivers Alaa Rajab and Nabil Bakdounes.
U.S.-backed forces announced the capture of Islamic State's last territory in Syria in March, eliminating its rule over a caliphate which it had proclaimed in Iraq and Syria in 2014.
The ICRC said" "We call on anyone with information to please come forward. If our colleagues are still being held, we call for their immediate and unconditional release."
