BAGHDAD, Iraq, July 26, An Egyptian diplomat who had been kidnapped in broad daylight as he was stepping out of a mosque last Friday was released by his captors today on the grounds that he was a good Muslim.
On the same day, two Jordanian truck drivers were kidnapped by a group demanding that their employer stop doing business in Iraq, while an Interior Ministry official was gunned down in front of his home in a Baghdad suburb."
