The Sunni Iranian terrorist group Jundallah, or Soldiers of God, claimed in an Internet posting on that it has kidnapped a clerk at Iran's uranium conversion facility in the central city of Isfahan.

Deputy Interior Minister, Ali Abdollahi, confirmed the kidnap victim, Amir Hossein Shirani, was a former welder and driver at the nuclear facility but said the abduction was for ransom, not political motives. He said Shirani had been fired from Isfahan in 2005 for incompetence.

Abdollahi was quoted by the official IRNA news agency Saturday as saying that Shirani was kidnapped by Jundallah two months ago while he was working as a driver in southeast Iran, where the group is waging insurgency.
