Gunmen in Iraqi army uniforms have abducted an Iranian diplomat in Baghdad.

A spokesman for Iran’s foreign ministry said it holds the United States responsible for the safety of its diplomat, who was seized in Baghdad’s Karradah district late Sunday.

The Iranian spokesman said the kidnappers were linked to Iraq’s Defense Ministry "which works under the supervision of American forces."

A U.S. military spokesman denied any U.S. involvement in the seizure of the Iranian diplomat.

Iraqi officials say assailants riding in two vehicles intercepted the diplomat’s car in the mainly Shi’ite district…

Yes, we should take a lesson from Iran on how to respect diplomats.
