The American University of Afghanistan (AUAF) in Kabul temporarily closed its campus Tuesday, two days after two of its foreign lecturers were kidnapped.
While confirming the kidnapping of an Australian and an American on Sunday, the statement on the AUAF's Facebook page did not reveal their names.
"We are devastated by the news and will remain vigilant to ensure the safety and security of all university personnel and students," Mark English, President of AUAF, said.
The university said that "everything possible is being done to ensure (the lecturers') immediate and safe return," and also said it expects to reopen its doors on 10 August.
Earlier this year an Australian woman working for an NGO was kidnapped in Jalalabad. Her whereabouts are still unknown.
