DAVOS, Switzerland (Reuters) - Iraqi Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi said on Thursday that three Americans who disappeared in Iraq last week "just went missing", and that he very much doubted any Iranian involvement.

Asked at the start of a meeting with U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry in Davos if he thought there was an Iranian link to their disappearance, Abadi said: "I doubt it very much. We don't know if they have been kidnapped ... They just went missing."
