Egyptian Engineer Kidnapped in Baghdad

The name of this engineer, Samuel Edward, caught my eye. Samuel Edward is not an Islamic name, so most like he is member of the Coptic Christian minority in Iraq.

A group of unidentified gunmen kidnapped an Egyptian engineer, called Samuel Edward, working for Iraq's Iraqna (our Iraq) Telecommunications Company as he was leaving his house in al-Mansour neighbourhood in Baghdad on his way to work on Monday.

Company and Police sources said that a company driver who was waiting outside the engineer's house to drive him to the company's office in the same neighbourhood was also abducted but was later released.
