A Canadian Parliament official reported Sunday that four aid workers, including two Canadians, had been kidnapped in Iraq but refused to name their group or say where they were seized. Dan McTeague, parliamentary secretary for Canadians abroad, confirmed that the incident happened on Saturday, but refused to name the organization the two Canadians worked for or the location where they were kidnapped. He claimed he wouldn't release those details in order to protect the safety of the individuals involved. McTeague stated that the organization has not requested any assistance at this time. Briton Norman Kember was among the four kidnapped, the British government said Sunday. Kember's wife said he was representing a number of groups in the country and was a longtime peace activist.
