Four aid workers, including two Canadians and Briton, have been kidnapped in Iraq, an Iraqi police commander said Sunday, while Iraqi police have arrested eight Sunni Arabs for allegedly plotting to assassinate the investigating judge in the case against Saddam Hussein. Brigadier Hussein Kamal, the deputy interior minister for intelligence, said he had received a report that two Canadians and a Briton working for a relief organizations had been kidnapped, but he refused to discuss any details. He confirmed an incident first described by Dan McTeague, parliamentary secretary for Canadians abroad. Speaking in Ottawa, he said the incident happened on Saturday, but refused to name the organization involved or the location where they were kidnapped.
