By the Busload

This is getting insane:
More than 100 Iraqis employed by the ministry of industry north of Baghdad were kidnapped by gunmen as they left work.

The workers at the Hateen and Nasr factories in the restive town of Taji were ambushed by at least 50 gunmen who had arrived in five minibuses, the source said.

They were loaded onto the same buses that were waiting to take them back to their homes, he said.

Hateen and Nasr were part of the military-industrial complex under the rule of ousted leader Saddam Hussein before their conversion into civilian manufacturing facilities belonging to the ministry of industry.
The Iraqi government is now being kidnapped. But, please, let's just stay the course because it is clearly working out very well.
