An Iraqi-Canadian businessman kidnapped in Baghdad earlier this month was killed despite efforts to pay a ransom, Canadian Prime Minister Paul Martin said.

Martin warned all Canadians in
Iraq to leave the country as he condemned the murder of Zaid Meerwali, 32, who was kidnapped from his Baghdad home on August 2.


His kidnappers demanded a 250,000 dollars ransom, according to his family.

His nephew offered them 200,000 dollars, but after not hearing back from them, he circled area hospitals and made the grim discovery that his uncle had been killed.

Strong words by Martin?

Personally he doesnt have to tell me, if I was a Canadian in Iraq I too would want to get out of there.
