Four Western aid workers, including two Canadians and a Briton, have been kidnapped in Iraq, officials say.

A senior Canadian official confirmed that two Canadian nationals were seized in the capital Baghdad on Saturday.

The UK Foreign Office later named a Briton believed to have been abducted with them. The fourth is said to be American, but there is no confirmation.

Uk Foreign Secretary Jack Straw has reportedly met with Iraqi Foreign Minister Hoshyar Zebari to discuss the situation. 'Special British embassy hostage teams ' are said to be trying to determine the motives behind the kidnapping although having recieved no ransom demands or contact of any kind Jim Muir working in Baghdad "suggested the motive for the crime may not be financial,"
