Ambassador Halit Bozkurt Aran said Serdar Durna, Yurdaer Etike and Avi Ozan had just left Zahedan, the capital of Sistan and Baluchistan province, and had stopped for some paragliding in the area before entering Pakistan on a trip whose final destination was to have been Nepal.

Aran said the Iranian authorities had been informed and officials from the three countries were working on the case together, but gave no further details about the Christmas Eve kidnapping.

One January 1, a Sunni Muslim group calling itself Jundallah (soldiers of Allah) claimed the kidnaping of nine Iranian soldiers near Saravan, in the same region.
