Iraqi security forces say they have surrounded areas in Baghdad where they believe hostages are being held, after a mass kidnapping inside a government ministry building.
Hours earlier armed men raided Iraq's Ministry of Higher Education abducting up to 100 men, but a government spokesman says at least 20 have been released.
A witness, Houssam Hussein, works in the building, but had stepped out when the gunmen arrived.
"There were about 30 cars and the men were in police commander uniforms and armed with rocket-propelled grenades and machine guns," he said.
