The Guardian newspaper said that one of its reporters had disappeared in Iraq and was believed to have been kidnapped. Rory Carroll, 33, an Irish citizen who was the Guardian's Baghdad correspondent, was on assignment when he vanished, the paper said in a statement Wednesday. "It is believed Mr. Carroll may have been taken by a group of armed men," the statement said. "The Guardian is urgently seeking information about Mr. Carroll's whereabouts and condition." Carroll's father, Joe, said The Guardian told him three people had been with his son when he was abducted, "and one of them did get a bit roughed up but he was the only one kidnapped."
