Agence France Presse reporter kidnapped in Gaza

Israel Radio has just reported that an Agence France Presse reporter was abducted at gunpoint in Gaza within the last hour or so.

More details when they are available.


The kidnapping took place just before sunset in Gaza City, around 4:50 PM local time. The victim is a 50-year old Peruvian photographer named Jaime Razuri. An AFP reporter said the photographer was returning from an assignment in Gaza and was abducted at gunpoint by five masked 'men' as he got out of his car with his driver.

The AFP reporter said the photographer spent most of his career covering Latin America.
