BAGHDAD (AP) — An official says a prominent Sunni politician earlier seized by gunmen in Iraq's capital has been released.

Ghalib al-Zamili said that Riyadh al-Adhadah is now back at home Saturday, a day after gunmen traveling in 10 black SUVs took him from his home in Baghdad along with his four bodyguards.

The bodyguards also were released. That's according to a police officer who declined to be named because he is not authorized to brief journalists.

The police officer said he didn't know the identities of the kidnappers or where al-Adhadh was taken.
