An Iraqi government minister has been kidnapped in north-eastern Baghdad, said security sources.

Two security guards and another man - identified either as another ministry official or Mr Fares's driver - were also abducted, said reports.

The identity of the kidnappers is not known.

Kidnappings happen regularly in Baghdad - either motivated by financial gain or to achieve political ends.
