Iraqi PM ‘doubts’ Iran involvement in disappearance of three Americans

Published January 21st, 2016 - 02:46 GMT

Iraqi Prime Minister Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi was asked by reporters in Davos, Switzerland on Thursday if there was an Iranian link to the three Americans who went missing in Baghdad last week, Reuters reports.

"I don't know about that. I doubt it very much. We don't know if they have been kidnapped ... They just went missing," Abadi responded. 

The US State Department said Sunday that three US citizens were reportedly kidnapped in the Iraqi capital Baghdad.

On Tuesday, Iraqi intelligence and American government sources were kidnapped and were being held by an Iranian-backed Shia militia.
