BAGHDAD (Reuters) - Seven South Koreans, three Japanese and a Briton were reported Thursday to have been seized in Iraq and militants threatened to burn the Japanese alive unless their country withdrew its troops.
Arab television Al Jazeera showed the three Japanese, kneeling with their eyes bound with white cloth and surrounded by masked men holding rifles and also sitting on the floor without their bindings and talking to their captors. The walls of the room were riddled with bullets.

It said they had been taken hostage by a hitherto unknown Iraqi group called Saraya al-Mujahideen (Mujahideen Brigades).
Maybe we don't have a clue what to do in Iraq, but it seems like everyone over there is now on the same page.
