Pakistanis confess to kidnapping

Two Pakistani citizens have confessed to involvement in the kidnapping two weeks ago of a six year old child in the central Mozambican city of Beira.

The police showed the two men, named as Mohamad Jamil Jamal and Asif Mohamad Ali, to reporters in Beira on Wednesday.

Cited in the Beira daily paper “Diario de Mocambique”, the two Pakistanis said the kidnap gang also includes three Mozambicans, and is led by a man named Nelson who owns a shop in Beira and another at Inchope, in Manica province.

“We were given our instructions by Nelson”, said the Pakistanis. “The objective was to take the child to Inchope, with the promise that each of us would receive money. We were paid some money after the kidnapping, but the person giving us orders gave up after one of our colleagues was detained”.

The press officer in the Sofala provincial police command, Sididi Paulo, said the police now have the clues needed to pursue and arrest the other three members of the gang.
