Missing In Iraq

Iraq abductionBaghdad – A German woman has been kidnapped in Iraq in the latest strike against foreigners in the war-torn country.
The woman, said to be an archaeologist in her 40s who had worked in Iraq for some time and who speaks Arabic, was seized a day before an American, two Canadians and a Briton were also taken hostage in Baghdad.

The German government was attempting "to bring the woman to safety as soon as possible" and has set up a special team to handle the affair, said spokesperson Martin Jaeger.
ARD published a photograph on its website showing two blindfolded people kneeling next to three men, their faces hidden by scarves, toting automatic rifles and a grenade-launcher.
