HAZNI: Gunmen abducted about 35 Afghan university teachers on Tuesday after setting in fire a bus carrying them in eastern Ghazni province, a provincial official said.

"Gunmen stopped a bus carrying university teachers from southern Kandahar province to national capital Kabul. They set in fire the bus and took the professors to an unknown location late morning," the provincial government spokesman Shaffiq Nang told Xinhua. He said the incident took place along Kandahar-Kabul highway in Mullanaw Baba area of the restive Qara Bagh district, in southwest of provincial capital Ghazni city, 120 km south of Kabul. No group claimed responsibility. The authorities blame Taliban militants for such attacks.

The source said that security forces launched a search operation to locate and rescue the victims. Ghazni is notorious for Taliban hotbed.
