Iraqi farmer sees insurgents abduct 2 US soldiers

An Iraqi farmer said Sunday that he saw seven heavily armed gunmen capture two American soldiers during an attack on a road checkpoint south of Baghdad, while US troops searched for their comrades for a second day. The White House promised to do everything it could to find the soldiers and said it had a message for anybody who may have taken the two men: "Give them back." Gunmen, meanwhile, kidnapped 10 bakery workers in northern Baghdad, and four people were killed in a mortar attack on a house elsewhere in the capital. Iraqi police also found 17 bodies in and around Baghdad on Sunday, including those of four women and a teenager who were handcuffed and shot in the head, apparently the latest victims of death squads that plague the capital and other areas.
