Eleven Sunni tribal leaders from the restive province of Diyala were kidnapped in Baghdad on Sunday after meeting a top official in Shiite Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki’s office, a security official said. The tribal chiefs were seized in the north Baghdad neighbourhood of Al-Shaab which has a strong presence of Shiite militiamen loyal to the Mahdi Army of radical cleric Moqtada al-Sadr, the official told AFP. Eight of them belonged to the Anbakiyah tribe, two to the Bayati tribe and one to the Al-Azza, he added.
