In the early hours of this morning, it was known of the kidnapping of two Cuban health workers who render their services in Mandera County, Republic of Kenya. The co-workers are named Assel Herrera Correa, specialist in General Integral Medicine of the province of Las Tunas and Landy Rodríguez Hernández, specialist in Surgery of the province of Villa Clara.
Channels of communication have been established immediately with the Kenyan authorities to address this situation, while keeping the families of collaborators here in Cuba informed.
A government working group has also been set up to follow up on this sensitive issue.
