Baghdad gunmen kidnap Iraq’s deputy justice minister

Gunmen kidnapped Iraq’s acting deputy justice minister Abdulkarim Fares in the Binook area of northeastern Baghdad on Tuesday, officials said.

A police colonel said black-clad kidnappers in several vehicles stopped his car and that his driver was wounded by gunfire when he tried to intervene.

An interior ministry official confirmed the kidnapping had taken place, without providing details.

Good to see our Ally has internal security well in hand.

  • One Muslim faction killing another Muslim faction. What is new about that.

    Islam is a killing cult. If you are near large numbers of Muslims, you can get caught up in the killing.

    No mystery here.

    Should be interesting to see how this bunch kills him, possibly something new to suit their perverted line of reasoning.
