CNN Producer Kidnapped by Muslim Terrorists in Gaza.
GAZA (al-Reuters) - Armed Palestinians [sic] kidnapped an Israeli Arab producer for the CNN television network from a car in Gaza City on Monday after asking for him by name.
There was no immediate claim of responsibility. A CNN correspondent who was in the vehicle with the producer, Riyad Ali, said the gunmen gave no clue why they were taking his colleague away.
"We were going up a main street and a white Peugeot drove in front of us. A young man got out of his car, pulled a gun out of trousers and said ... 'Which one of you is Riyad,"' the correspondent, Ben Wedeman said in a CNN broadcast from Gaza.
"He said, 'I am Riyad,' and they said, 'Get out of the car."'
