Danish and Dutch evacuate Afghan embassies

COPENHAGEN/AMSTERDAM (Reuters) - Denmark and The Netherlands have moved all the staff from their embassies in Afghanistan to secret safe locations because of concern about security, Foreign Ministry officials said on Wednesday.

Denmark moved the staff out of its embassy in Algeria a few days ago for the same reason.

"There was a change in the security situation and we decided that it was necessary..." said Danish Foreign Ministry spokesman Erik Laursen, saying the decision was based on new intelligence.
