Romanian Journalists Taken Hostage in IraqTopics: Middle East News and Perspectives
What is it about Europeans that prevents them from seeing the Islamic forrest of terror, for the trees of near-term need for determination to accomplish the job at hand?
(...) Three Romanian journalists had finished interviewing Iraq's interim prime minister hours earlier when one of them sent an ominous text message back to her newsroom: "Help, this is not a joke, we've been kidnapped."
(...) The three were abducted Monday night near their Baghdad hotel, officials said Tuesday - the latest journalists to be taken hostage in Iraq.
(...) They were identified as reporter Marie Jeanne Ion, 32, and cameraman Sorin Dumitru Miscoci, 30, from Bucharest-based television station Prima TV, and Romania Libera reporter Ovidiu Ohanesian, 37.
Rusty Shackleford at Jawa Report has extensive coverage on the story, with images.
