BARCELONA — A group of armed and masked men kidnapped a wealthy young mother and her five-year-old son.

The gang, armed with pistols, burst into the house in Matadepera, near Barcelona, just after 7.30am.

They attacked the woman's husband and an employee, before kidnapping the 25-year-old and her son.

The mother and son were found safe and sound a few hours later in San Sugat, a few kilometres from their home.

Police said the kidnappers were thought to belong to a well-organised gang who demand ransoms are paid quickly from the victims' relatives and are dubbed 'kidnap-express'.

The kidnappers also stole two Mercedes owned by the family.

Police were hunting the gang.
