Westerners 'abducted in Baghdad'
BBC | May 28, 2007
A number of Westerners have reportedly been kidnapped from a finance ministry building in central Baghdad.
There is confusion over the number and nationality of those involved.
They are believed to include at least one finance expert, thought to be German, and at least four bodyguards, believed to be British.
"We are aware of reports that a group of westerners have been kidnapped. We are urgently looking into them," the UK foreign office said.
Central Baghdad was also wracked by a bus explosion which killed at least 22 people and injured about 55.
It is not clear if the parked minibus was carrying any passengers.
The attack took place in Tayaran Square, where labourers wait for daily construction work.
The blast comes a day after a car bomb killed at least 20 people in the Sinak commercial district in Iraq.
