Militia suspected on Iraq kidnapThe story goes on to explain that the degree and complexity of coordination indicate Police involvement.
A Shia militia group is thought to be behind the kidnapping of five Britons in the Iraqi capital Baghdad.
Iraqi Foreign Minister Hoshyar Zebari said that the Mehdi Army, rather than al-Qaeda, could be responsible.
The Anglican vicar of Baghdad, Canon Andrew White, said the kidnapping could be linked to the recent killing of a radical Shia cleric by UK troops.
The Britons were seized at a government building near Baghdad's Sadr City suburb, a Mehdi Army stronghold. The five men - a computer expert and four bodyguards - were taken from the finance ministry building in Baghdad.
The kidnappers wore police uniforms and staged the capture without firing a shot, senior Iraq officials said.
BBC security correspondent Frank Gardner said: "Because these men were very unusually seized from a government ministry in broad daylight by people dressed as special police commandoes, in an incredibly brazen raid, the Iraqi government itself has got a few questions to answer about this.Whatever happened to "Kill them all. Let God sort them out later."?
"I think the suspicion is that there was some connivance, possibly low or middle-level, within the police. The Iraqi police is known to be heavily infiltrated by Shia militias."
