Three members of Iraqi PM Allawi's family have been kidnapped, according to Reuters:


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.

How will he stand up to this? Will he call a ceasefire on Fallujah?

If Alawi back off I'm going to be pissed considering noone would back off to save the Americans,Brits,Korean, etc prisoners headed. It would be wrong for him to be able to barter for his family , when noone else was allowed to,
