HELSINKI — The Finnish Foreign Ministry says two Finnish citizens have been kidnapped in Yemen.

In a brief statement late Friday, the ministry said the Finns were abducted in the capital and that it was "investigating the incident through their international contacts."

A ministry spokeswoman declined to give more details pending a meeting of officials later Saturday.
