According to Middle East Online
, two Americans and a Briton were taken hostage from their home.
"Two Americans and a British civilian were kidnapped from their house in the Mansur district in Baghdad this morning around 6:00 (0200 GMT)," ministry spokesman Colonel Adnan Abdul Rahman said, correcting an earlier statement that the trio were all British.
He said a group of armed men had driven up in a minibus before bursting into the house and snatching the three hostages.
A colonel from the Maamun police station that patrols the western part of Mansur said the Briton and two American worked for a supply company and had been seized at gunpoint.
My hope goes out to them.
