Two Canadian women working for a local aid agency in Ghana, the Youth Challenge International NGO, were kidnapped at a golf club.

A police statement did not name the victims of the kidnapping at the Kumasi Royal Golf Club but gave their ages as 19 and 20. They did not say when it happened, only that the complaint came in late on Tuesday.

Global Affairs Canada is confirming reports that Canadian citizens have been kidnapped in Ghana. Canadian officials are working with local authorities and are in touch with the families of the individuals who were abducted, Global Affairs said.
