Iraqi kidnappers have released an Emirati diplomat kidnapped this week in Baghdad, his brother told The Associated Press Friday. Naji Rashid al-Nuaimi, 28, the first secretary at the United Arab Emirates Embassy was seized Tuesday night in Baghdad by gunmen who shot his Sudanese driver. His brother, Mohammed al-Nuaimi, said the family had been told by the government that he was free, but they did not know how his release had come about. "The officials just told us that he was released and he was on his way to the embassy," al-Nuaimi said in a phone call from his home in Dibba, a town in the southern Emirates.
