Iraq blames kidnap of Britons on Shiite militia

It is sad to see AFP buying into the standard press lie that the Iraq kidnappings are done by people "dressed in police uniforms". These are policemen that are doing ALL THE KIDNAPPING - not people dressed as policemen. Anyone who knows Baghdad or deals with hostages will confirm this.

Agence France-Presse - 31 May, 2007
Iraqi and British officials scrambled Wednesday to get to the bottom of the brazen daylight kidnapping of five British contractors snatched from a finance ministry building in Baghdad.The Britons -- a consultant and his four armed bodyguards -- were taken on Tuesday by a large group on gunmen in Iraqi police uniforms.
