BAGHDAD — U.S. forces captured two senior figures of al Qaeda’s branch in Iraq, the U.S. military said yesterday, and one of Turkey’s richest businessmen was reported kidnapped, appearing in a video with a weeping employee and saying they were being held hostage.

In Baghdad, police uncovered more bodies under the rubble after a suicide bomber blew up a gas tanker in an upscale Baghdad district, bringing the death toll in the Friday night attack to at least nine persons.
