Iran warned Friday of a "humanitarian disaster" in Afghanistan if 11 of its diplomats allegedly kidnapped by Afghanistan's Taliban army were not released quickly.

While Iranian Deputy Foreign Minister Mohsin Aminza-deh stopped short of threatening military action, he said Tehran was looking at all its options.The Taliban army denies that its fighters arrested Iranian diplomats when they captured the northern city of Mazar-e-Sharif earlier this month. However, the Taliban said members arrested several Iranian truck drivers who they said were supplying weapons to its opponents.
