(CNN) -- Two German men were kidnapped Tuesday night in Sudan, the German Foreign Office said.

The ministry said they were working for a German civilian government agency, THW (Technisches Hilfswerk) in Darfur.

The agency, the government's civil and catastrophe protection agency, has been in Darfur since 2004 and has had a generator and repair workshop in Nyala and Al-Fashir.
