Another 45 cases have taken place in the north of the country, above all in the cities of Mosul and Kirkuk.More journalists are also taken hostage in Iraq than anywhere else in the world. A total of 84 journalists and media workers (64 per cent of them Iraqis) have been kidnapped there in the past four years. Only about half of them have been freed.
