A female Iraqi journalist has been abducted in the Iraqi capital, Baghdad, by armed men who burst into her home under the guise of members of security forces.

Head of Iraq’s Journalistic Freedoms Observatory Ziad al-Ajili said on Tuesday that Afrah Shawqi Hammudi was kidnapped on Monday night at about 10:00 local time in a southern Baghdad neighborhood.

"Eight armed men burst into her house in Saidiya dressed in plain clothes and entered by pretending to belong to the security forces," Ajili said.

His remarks were confirmed by an Iraqi Interior Ministry source who spoke on condition of anonymity.

Ajili added, "They tied up her son and stole mobile phones, computers and cash before kidnapping Afrah and fleeing."

The 43-year-old reporter works for the London-based pan-Arab newspaper, Asharq al-Awsat, as well as a number of news websites, including Aklaam.
