Not clear from this article whether the citizen in question is employed by British Intelligence or just a British Muslim who has been caught up in fanaticism. Under normal circumstances, I would think not, but after the previous arrest of the two MI guys who were carrying loads of explosives along with their night vision/weapons/communications gear, I'm growing suspicious that the British are engineering incidents for some reason.
NAJAF, Iraq (Reuters) - A British national has been arrested in Iraq, the British embassy said on Tuesday.
"We are aware that a British national has been arrested," said a British embassy spokeswoman.
Saadoun al-Jabiree, a media officer for the Iraqi border police in Najaf, said he had contacted the British consulate in Basra on the British national.
No conclusions, just a second weird story in the same area.
