Baku-APA. The foreign policy chief of the European Union Catherine Ashton on Friday condemned the kidnapping of two German citizens by the rebel National Liberation Army (ELN) of Colombia, APA reports quoting Xinhua.

Ashton called upon the group to free them immediately and unconditionally and to end its activities, according to a statement issued by her spokesperson.

She also welcomed and commended the efforts of the Colombian government to obtain a peaceful liberation of the hostages.

Two male German nationals, identified as Uve Broyer and Gunter Otto Broyer in their 70s, were seized when they were traveling in northeastern Colombia on Tuesday.

The ELN, Colombia's second largest guerrilla group after the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia (FARC), accused the two Germans of spying as they could not explain their presence in the area bordering Venezuela.
