26 abducted Qatari hunters freed after 16 months
A group of Qatari hunters, including members of the ruling family, were freed 16 months after being kidnapped in Iraq.
The Iraqi interior ministry said “all 26” were in Baghdad and would be handed over to a Qatari envoy, reports BBC.
The hunters were abducted by gunmen in a desert area of Iraq near the Saudi border in December 2015.
A wide-scale search was launched but very little information was known about their whereabouts or condition.
