Three British men are being held in custody in Afghanistan by the Taliban.

The UK’s Foreign, Commonwealth & Development Office (FCDO) says it is trying to secure consular contact with the British nationals, and is supporting their families.

According to Sky News, the men being detained are a 23-year-old ‘danger tourist’; a charity medic; and a UK citizen who manages a hotel in the Afghan capital, Kabul.

The medic and hotel manager are thought to have been in custody since January, the news organization reports.

Scott Richards, a spokesperson for the non-profit Presidium Network which is providing assistance to the pair, told Sky News he understands they are well and in good health.

But he said there “has been no meaningful contact” with the men, adding his organization is “very hopeful that contact will be made”.

An FCDO spokesperson said: “We are working hard to secure consular contact with British nationals detained in Afghanistan and we are supporting families.”

The department says it engages “pragmatically” with the Taliban on incidents including consular cases like these, as well as human rights, counter-terrorism and humanitarian issues.

The FCDO continues to advise against all travel to Afghanistan based on security risks, which it says include detention.
