Flight carrying Qataris detained in Baghdad takes off

A flight with Qatari nationals who were detained in Iraq aboard has taken off, reports said Saturday.

The Baghdad Post scooped the news on Thursday.

The Shiite of Hezbollah militias kidnapped 19 Qataris at Samawah city in southern Baghdad on 18th of December 2015 after they obtained permits from Iraqi authorities to hunt in Iraq.

A well informed source told The Baghdad Post that unconfirmed reports said the militia has released Qatari prisoners who were held by sectarian militias in Iraq.

The Qataris were kidnapped by Iranian-backed militias near the Saudi Arabian borders.
