Gunmen have kidnapped at least 26 Qatari falcon hunters, including members of its royal family, in a remote desert area of southern Iraq, officials have revealed.
They were snatched from their camp near Samawah province, 230 miles from Baghdad, at around 3am today, said the area’s governor, Faleh al-Zayadi.
The kidnappers were driving SUVs mounted with machine guns, one police official said after the second high profile abduction in Iraq since September.
