Reformists protest against kidnapping of journalist Afrah Shawqi

An Iraqi reformist group organized on Friday a rally at el Mutanabbi Street in Baghdad, condemning the kidnapping of Iraqi journalist Afrah Shawqi.

The demonstrators urged local authorities to intensify efforts to arrest kidnappers as soon as possible and punish officers who allowed this security breach.

Afrah Shawqi, a reporter for al-Aalem al-Jadeed online newspaper, was kidnapped by an unknown armed group from her residence in Saydiya, Baghdad earlier on Tuesday.
