The Guardian newspaper said Wednesday that one of its reporters has disappeared in Iraq and was believed to have been kidnapped. Rory Carroll, 33, an Irish citizen who is the Guardian's Baghdad correspondent, was on assignment when he vanished, the paper said in a statement. Carroll has been based in Baghdad for nine months and previously reported from South Africa and Rome. Insurgents in Iraq have kidnapped more than 220 foreigners and killed nearly 40. The last reported abduction of a foreigner was in September, when a video posted on the Internet showed Garabet Jekerjian being held at gunpoint.
