Americans Kidnapped in Baghdad

BAGHDAD (Reuters) - Three U.S. citizens who were kidnapped in Baghdad last month have been released, according to Iraqi media reports on Tuesday that were confirmed by a senior Iraqi government source.

Unknown gunmen seized the trio from a private apartment in mid-January. U.S. and Iraqi sources said at the time that they were being held by an Iranian-backed Shi'ite militia.

The U.S. Embassy in Baghdad declined to comment immediately on the reports.
