Interim Iraqi Prime Minister Ayad Allawi meets with U.S. Marines wounded in Fallujah at the 31st Combat Support Hospital in Baghdad on Wednesday. Two members of Allawi's family were abducted from their Baghdad home Tuesday evening, including his cousin, Ghazi Allawi, and his cousin's daughter-in law.
There's the price of freedom for you. I'm guessing the PM will not be stopped by this thuggery. He's already survived being axed by Saddam's assassins, he's tough stuff.

Marines from the 1st Division use a bolt cutter to remove the handcuffs from an Iraqi at a makeshift military hospital in Fallujah, Iraq, on Wednesday. The man, whose name was not released, was found handcuffed in an insurgent hiding place in Fallujah after being kidnapped 10 days ago in Baghdad's suburb of Abu Ghraib. The Marines believe he was used as a human shield.
