ROMANIAN JOURNALISTS KIDNAPPED IN IRAQ
30.03.2005: SAFAX
Three Romanian journalists – a reporter and a cameraman of Prima TV and a correspondent of Romania Libera daily, have disappeared in Iraq on Monday.
Their colleagues in Bucharest said it seems that journalists have been kidnapped.

According to Prima TV administration, its reporter in Iraq managed to send an SMS asking for help.

Romanian President Traian Basescu stated that all special services are implicated in solving the journalists’ case. Basescu said that Ministry of Foreign Affairs has created a special group, which includes members of special services, to find out what happened to journalists.

International press related later that the Al Qaeda leader in Iraq, Abu Mussab Al-Zarqawi, has asserted Romanian journalists kidnapping.
