WATCH: 2 Americans Abducted in Baghdad, Iraq

The State Department was working Sunday to locate three Americans in Iraq after a report that they had been kidnapped in Baghdad.

Dubai-based news service Al Arabiya reported that three Americans had been kidnapped by “militias” in the Iraqi capital.

State department spokesperson John Kirby said they were aware of the reports. Last Monday, at least 18 people were killed and 40 others were injured when insurgents attacked a shopping mall in Baghdad. ISIS appeared to claim responsibility for the attack.
