UN WELCOMES RELEASE, RETURN OF QATARI ABDUCTEES IN IRAQ

NEW YORK, April 22 (NNN-KUNA) — The World’s top body welcomed the release and return of 26 Qatari nationals to their country after two-years of abduction in Al-Muthanna governorate, south Iraq.

“We understand that the Qatari nationals were released unharmed. We are grateful to the Iraqi authorities and to all who contributed to the safe release of the abductees,” UN Spokesman Stephane Dujarric said in a statement late on Friday.

Last night, the Iraqi Ministry of Interior announced the release of Qatari and Saudi hunters who were kidnapped by an armed group in a desert area in Al-Muthanna governorate, south Iraq, in 2015.–NNN-KUNA
