Three British men are in custody in Taliban-controlled Afghanistan, including “dangerous tourist” Miles Routledge.

Mr. Routledge, from Birmingham, is a thrill-seeking traveler trying to visit the world’s most dangerous places. He was evacuated from the country during the fall of Kabul in August 2021.

One of the other two men has been named as Kevin Cornwell charity doctor.

Another UK citizen who runs a hotel in Kabul has been arrested.

A spokesman for the Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office (FCDO) said: “We are working hard to ensure consular contact with British nationals detained in Afghanistan and we are supporting the families.”

Cornwell, arrested by the Taliban’s General Intelligence Directorate (GDI), and the anonymous Briton are in good health, according to Scott Richards of the Presidium Network, a humanitarian non-profit organization.

Richards said: “There has been no significant contact (with the men), there has been no access by international monitoring agencies… and there has been no other form of access to the people to date.”
