BAGHDAD (Reuters) - Three members of Iraqi Prime Minister Iyad Allawi's family have been kidnapped by gunmen, a spokesman for the Iraqi interim government said on Wednesday.
A first cousin of the prime minister, the cousin's wife and another family member were seized from their home in Baghdad on Tuesday morning, spokesman Georges Sada said.
He gave no further details on the circumstances of their abduction, but a police source said there had been a short gun battle at the home in a southwestern district of the capital before the people were seized.
Sada said no demands had so far been made by the kidnappers.
