Gunmen abducted at least 80 Iraqi factory workers on Wednesday as they were being ferried home after work in a fleet of buses just north of Baghdad, police and Interior Ministry sources said.

Five busloads of employees of the state-owned Great Victory factory at Taji were commandeered by dozens of gunmen in at least five cars, the officials said. One source put the number of those kidnapped at at least 100 and possibly many more.
