BAGHDAD (AP) - Two powerful Shiite militias are top suspects in the abduction of three Americans last weekend in a Baghdad neighborhood.

An Iraqi police commander and a Western security official in Baghdad say they have identified the two militias, and the commander says "nobody can do anything in that neighborhood without the approval of those militias."

The U.S. Embassy in Baghdad says it's working with Iraqi authorities to locate the Americans.
