A German woman has been missing in Iraq since Friday and a special crisis team has been set up to secure her safe return, Foreign Ministry spokesman Martin Jaeger said Tuesday. Germany's ARD television reported the woman had been kidnapped and posted pictures allegedly showing the blindfolded woman with her captors, one armed with a rocket propelled grenade, that it said were taken from a video demanding Germany stop any dealings with Iraq's government. Germany has ruled out sending troops to Iraq and opposed the US-led war. It was not immediately clear what the woman was doing in Iraq. Her name was not released. Jaeger would only say that the woman was missing.
