CARE head in Iraq kidnapped

The senior official from CARE International in Iraq has been kidnapped by the monsters.

Margaret Hassan was taken this morning, according to a CARE spokesperson.

Robert Glasser, a director with the charity, said Ms Hassan was CARE's head of operations in Iraq.

He said she was an Iranian national who had been caring for people in the country for more than 25 years.

Mr Glasser added he had no idea of a motive for the kidnap and believed Ms Hassan had been unharmed.

"We are doing what we can for her release," he added.

CARE is an international charity - not anybody's occupying force or anything.

Just damn.

If the case of the Telegraph journalist from last month is anything to go by CARE should contact Al Sadr and get him to sort it out. He made it clear he has no quarrell with non comabatants.
