A humanitarian consultant with dual British and Zimbabwean nationality has been kidnapped along with his local fixer by gunmen in Somalia, non-governmental organisations said on Friday.

Heavily armed men on three vehicles burst into the compound of the British NGO Save The Children-UK in Adado, in central Somalia, on Thursday night, a humanitarian source who asked not to be identified told AFP.

A security consultant and the Somali accompanying him were kidnapped by the armed men who set off towards Hobyo, a pirate stronghold on the Indian Ocean coast.

Two other humanitarian sources confirmed the account.
