[From the diaries by susanhu.] Rory Carroll was kidnapped today by armed men as he left an apartment in Sadr City. He had been watching the Saddam trial with an Iraqi family.

Rory, 33, graduated from Trinity College in Dublin. He was nominated best new reporter of the year in 1997 in Northern Ireland. Hired by the Guardian, he was Rome correspondent from 1999 until 2002.

We in Rome hope and pray for his well-being.
