Two Algerian diplomats in Iraq have been kidnapped in Baghdad, police say.
An Algerian embassy employee confirmed that mission chief Ali Balarousi had been abducted.

Police say the top envoy and a diplomatic aide were seized outside a restaurant in the western Mansour district by attackers in two cars.

The capture follows the abduction and killing earlier this month of Egypt's ambassador-designate in Iraq, which has been claimed by insurgents
