Gunmen wearing Iraqi army uniforms kidnapped two German engineers Tuesday in northern Iraq, and British troops detained several police officers among more than a dozen people linked to a series of killings, bombings and kidnappings in the southern city of Basra. The German government confirmed that two young German males from Leipzig had been abducted and a special crisis team has been sent to Iraq to deal with the matter. German Foreign Minister Frank-Walter Steinmeier said Berlin is doing "everything in our power so that we not only receive information, but the hostages will be returned to us safely."
