BAGHDAD — Nine Americans, including two soldiers, are missing in Iraq in a hostage-taking spree in which suspected Islamist militants have seized more than 40 foreigners in a bid to undermine the U.S.-led reconstruction effort.

The road to Baghdad International Airport remained closed yesterday for the second straight day amid a series of attacks on cars and convoys to and from the facility. Long lines formed at ticket counters for the limited number of commercial flights in and out of Iraq.
