2 Indonesian Journalists Missing in Iraq


Indonesian diplomats in Iraq say two Indonesian journalists are missing.

Indonesian Embassy officials in Baghdad said Friday the journalists, who work for an Indonesian television station (Metro TV,) were heading to Baghdad in a rented car when they disappeared Tuesday in the region of Ramadi.

No other details were immediately available.

Ramadi, 100 kilometers west of Baghdad, has been a center of insurgent activity and frequent clashes between U.S. and Iraqi forces fighting militants.

In another development, the U.S. military says an American soldier was killed Thursday by small arms fire in the northern city of Mosul.

News of the latest violence comes a day after election officials announced that final election results had given the country's main Shi'ite coalition a slim majority in the interim National Assembly.

Some information for this report provided by AP, AFP and Reuters.
