From Times Wire Reports

Gunmen wearing Iraqi special forces uniforms kidnapped a wealthy banker and his son after killing five bodyguards, police said.

Ghalib Kubba, director-general of the Basra International Bank, and his son, Hassan, were abducted late Thursday from the banker’s home in Baghdad’s western Yarmouk suburb, Maj. Felah Mohammedawi said.

The son works at the same bank, and officials said they expected a ransom demand.
