19 Shi’ites Kidnapped

19 male civilian Shi’ites have been kidnapped, according to Reuters, after stopping at a fake checkpoint north of Baghdad. Police say the kidnappers were gunmen in civilians clothes but carrying automatic weapons. All 19 are from a Shi’ite village near Baquba. 14 policemen who were kidnapped from the same area a month ago were later found dead.
