Terrorist group Al Qaeda has claimed responsibility for the abduction of the three aid workers from Spain, who went missing from a supply convoy on November 29 in Mauritania.

In a statement issued by Al Qaeda today which was shown on a television channel named Al Jazeera, it said that apart from the abduction of the three Spanish aid workers, it was also responsible for the kidnapping of Pierre Camatte, a French citizen, on the 25th of November in Mali.

In addition to claiming responsibility for the kidnappings, the terrorist group also said that France and Spain, the native countries of the kidnapped people, would be intimated about the ‘legitimate demands of the Mujahidin’ later.

Previous incidents of the same nature have included kidnappings of Europeans and Canadians who were later released, but a Columbian native was not so lucky.
