A journalist and a translator employed by the US television network, CBS has been kidnapped in Iraq, according to reports.

The two were kidnapped from the Qasr al-Sultan hotel and forced into a car in the southern city of Basra on Sunday, a police source told the Voices of Iraq (VOI) news agency.

Editor’s note: CBS have asked other media outlets to not speculate on the identity of those kidnapped while efforts are being made for their release. This article has been updated to reflect this.
