MSF restates its anger and condemnation over the abduction of its two colleagues in Dadaab
April 6, 2013
In October 2011, Montserrat Serra and Blanca Thiebaut were abducted from the refugee camp Ifo 2 in Dadaab, Kenya, while working to help the most vulnerable Somali population. They were then transferred to Somalia, where they could still be held against their will.
MSF restates its anger, condemning this act of violence against humanitarian workers and reiterates its demand for their immediate release.
The Thiebaut and Serra families express their concern and pain for the kidnapping and their willingness to do what is possible for the release of Blanca and Montserrat. Through MSF, they thank the media and other local, national and international institutions for the caution and discretion they have shown during all this time with regard to the abduction. MSF renews its call for continuing to exercise such discretion.
