DAMASCUS, Syria — The office of Syria's deputy foreign minister says gunmen have abducted his elderly father in the southern Daraa province.

The office says Deputy Foreign Minister Faisal Mekdad's father was seized Saturday in the village of Ghossom in Daraa province.

An official in Mekdad's office said the elder Mekdad is over 80 years old, but did not immediately know his name.

There was no immediate claim of responsibility.
