Irish-born British/Iraqi aid worker abducted…

AN Irish-born aid worker, with dual British and Iraqi nationality, has been kidnapped on her way to Baghdad to head up Care International’s operations.

UPDATE: Al Jazeera has shown a video of Mrs Hassan being held by an Iraqi group. (Link does not connect to the video, just the story by Al Jazeera, also on BBC.)

A slightly inhuman presence that bans bad comments and works late at night to remove the wrinkles in Slugger’s technical carpet. You will need to know about the comments policy to stay off the fightin’ side of me and there is a bit of background about me here. You can email me using this spam-proof link if you really need to, and Slugger is @sluggerotoole on Twitter. But above all, remember, Play the ball and not the man.
