A French official with the International Committee of the Red Cross has been kidnapped by armed men in Yemen.

He was seized late yesterday around 30km from the Red Sea port of Hodeida.

It is not yet clear who is responsible, but kidnappings of westerners are not uncommon in Yemen.

The ICRC said it had not heard from the kidnappers but it has issued a call for the aid worker's immediate release.
