Gunmen have kidnapped the son of a bodyguard for a judge in the Saddam Hussein trial, the father said Wednesday. Unknown gunmen kidnapped Karim Salam late Tuesday as he played in front of his parent's house in the eastern neighborhood of Kamsarah, said the boy's father Salam Hirmiz Gorgis. "At about 5:30 p.m. a car came here, two boys were playing, they took my son put him in the car and left," Gorgis told AP Television News. "He is sick and he is eight-years-old." Gorgis works for one of the five judges in the Saddam trial. However, the judge's identity cannot be revealed legally due to special security measures imposed for the trial.
