Several Canadian news outlets, like CTV, have picked up on an Al Jazeera story (not yet on their website) to the effect that several Canadian soldiers have been kidnapped from the Kandahar area by Taliban forces. The Canadian military is currently doing a headcount to confirm/deny the story. It will probably take some time to complete, given the dispersed nature of our people in the area.
The Taliban lie and Al Jazeera will often report their lies as truth. Our military spokespeople think this is the case in the current instance. Let's hope really, really hard they're right.
1:15 pm update: According to CBC, Al Jazeera is backing off a bit and claiming the story was given to it "second hand".
Update: As of the morning of June 8, all Canadian troops have been accounted for. That the story had proven false was evident last evening. However, Blogger was down for "unscheduled maintenance".
