A JORDANIAN businessmen has been snatched from his home in the Iraq capital of Baghdad by an unknown group demanding a $US250,000 ($A350,557) ransom for his release.

Jordan's official news agency Petra today named him as Jamal Sadek al-Salaymeh, an agent for a Japanese motor tyre firm.

"He was taken by three men in police uniform who burst into his home in the Al-Saydiyeh district and drove him away in a white car to an unknown destination," the agency said.

This kidnapping could be purely money-motivated, as no other demands have been made as yet.
