A 23-year-old female reporter, Reem Zaid, and 25-year-old male reporter, Marwan Khaza'al, working for Iraqi channel Sumariya TV were taken hostage by 5 terrorist gunmen in Iraq.
It seems they just wanted the faces as they left 2 cameramen behind. There is no information known on the terrorist group responsible.
Police and station officials said on Thursday that Reem Zaid, 23, and her colleague Marwan Khaza'al, 25, were returning to the offices of Sumariya TV in Baghdad on Wednesday after attending a press conference when they were kidnapped by gunmen.
A station official who spoke on condition of anonymity said: "They were in a car with two cameramen and their driver when another car blocked them. The five gunmen took the correspondents and their car and left the two cameramen."
"We are a neutral channel, we are not linked to the government," she said.
