Qatari hostages held in Iraq since 2015 freed - Al Jazeera TV

DOHA, Apr 21 (Reuters) Qatari citizens held hostage in Iraq by unidentified gunmen since 2015 have been freed and handed over to the Iraqi interior ministry, Qatar-based al-Jazeera reported today.
The satellite channel gave no further details on the release of the hostages, who were seized by gunmen in December 2015 while on a hunting trip near the border with Saudi Arabia.
An Iraqi security official later said Iraq would hand over the 26 hostages to Qatar's ambassador to Baghdad.
