(CNN) -- Two United Nations contract workers, a Briton and a Kenyan, were kidnapped Tuesday in southern Somalia, according to the U.N. Food and Agriculture Organization.

The two worked for India-based Genesys International Corp., which conducts aerial surveys for the U.N. to prepare detailed maps for eventual floodings in the area.

They were seized on a main road between Saakow and Bualle, about 200 miles southwest of Mogadishu, according to the FAO's office in Rome, Italy. E-mail to a friend E-mail to a friend
