Egyptian Diplomat Kidnapped in Iraq

The Egyptian embassy has confirmed that their third most senior dimplomat has been kidnapped by a group calling itself "Lions of God Brigades in Iraq". The kidnappers are demanding the Egyptian government not support US forces in Iraq.

Amid the rising number of foreigners kidnapped in the post-war country, this is the first case when a diplomatic official has been taken hostage.
