Iraqi Kurds who support Iran said they kidnaped three Italian engineers in northern Iraq and demanded Monday that Italy withdraw its warships from the Persian Gulf. A statement delivered to a Western news agency in Muslim West Beirut said the Iraqi Kurdistan National Union seized the Italians to protest "Italian aid to the Iraqi regime and Italian military presence in the gulf waters." Iran and Iraq have been at war since September, 1980. Each supports rebels within the other's Kurdish minority.

Zanone, who earlier this week said the danger from mines in the gulf has been reduced, added that a frigate might also be pulled out later depending on the needs of merchant shipping.
