N’DJAMENA, Chad (AP) — A search is underway for a Polish doctor kidnapped in southern Chad. Polish media reported the woman was volunteering at the Saint-Michel Hospital in the Central African nation when attackers pretending to be patients abducted her and a Mexican doctor. Dr. Carlos Solgado told The Associated Press by phone on Monday that he escaped during an altercation between the abductors and Chad’s security forces while the Polish woman was taken away. He said the attack happened Friday morning when four armed men on two motorbikes came into the hospital. Poland’s Foreign Ministry said Chadian and French forces are searching for the woman.
