It goes from very bad to worse. … now… …one of the best known aid workers in Iraq, Margaret Hassan of CARE International, was kidnapped.
Hassan, who is married to an Iraqi, was taken from her home in the Khadra neighborhood of West Baghdad, CARE officials confirmed. She is not a Uk citizen anymore but an Iraqi citizen since marriage.
Hassan is the head of CARE’s Iraq operation and has been in Iraq for about 30 years. “We do want to stress that she is an Iraqi national, not a Briton. She has been living there for many years,” a CARE International spokeswoman told news services.
