A German nurse working for the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) was kidnapped in Somalia's capital Mogadishu.
 
She was seized by unknown armed men from inside the ICRC compound.
 
The 10 remaining international staff are being evacuated to Nairobi until further notice.
 
A Somali woman working for the World Health Organization, also in Mogadishu, was shot dead by gunmen on Tuesday.
 
A relative of the woman, identified as Maryan Abdullahi, said she was targeted while at a market to buy items in preparation for her wedding next week.
 
There is no suggestion her killing and the abduction are linked.
 
Decades of conflict have made Somalia one of the world's most dangerous countries for aid workers, but security has improved in recent years and Wednesday's kidnapping is the first involving a foreign worker in almost 10 years.
