Contractor Kidnapped in Iraq

News report that Issa Salomi, 59, of El Cajon, California, has been kidnapped in Iraq. An Iraqi-American with dual citizenship, Salomi disappeared in Baghdad on January 23, 2010.

As of this evening, there are very few news stories on the kidnapping. A San Diego news station, KFMB, has video of Salomi from an Iraqi website. In the video, Salomi states he is being treated well, and makes several demands for his kidnappers.

KFMB, February 5, 2010

Sincere wishes for his safe return to family and friends.

Thank you Ms Sparky

Last night, I could only find two very short news stories on Salomi's kidnapping, both out of San Diego the largest city near El Cajon.

Then you were ahead of the game. It's all over the news today.

Hopefully he will come out of this OK.
