Americans, Briton abducted in Iraq

September 16, 2004 14:22 IST

Two Britons and an American were kidnapped in Baghdad Thursday, report agencies.

Earlier, officials had said the three men were all Britons.

The three civilians were abducted by gunmen who stormed their house in a west Baghdad neighbourhood early Thursday, said interior ministry spokesman Col. Adnan abdul-Rahman.

No shots were fired and men were bundled into a minivan and driven off, he said. He had no further details.

There was no immediate confirmation of the abduction from the British or American Embassies in Baghdad.
