Gunmen in a convoy of cars reportedly seized Filaih Wadi Mijthab, managing editor of the state-run "Al-Sabah" newspaper, while he was being driven with his son in eastern Baghdad. The son and driver were not taken.

According to Reporters Without Borders, Mijthab's abduction would be the eighth of a journalist this year in Iraq.
