MEK terrorist cell arrested for the attempted kidnapping of Director of the Office of Sheikh Humam Hamoudi
Iraq’s Security force arrested an armed group responsible for the attempted kidnapping of Abbas Al-Ameri, Director of the Office of the Chairman of the Foreign Relations Committee, Humam Hamoudi, in central Baghdad in October last year.
A security source told Sot Al-Iraq that "security forces detained the group that attempted to kidnap Abbas Amiri, Hammoudi’s office director. Investigations revealed that the group was working for the Mojahedin-e Khalq terrorist organisation."
Abbas Amiri survived the attempted kidnapping on 8th October last year. After emerging from his car in central Baghdad, an armed gang struggled to force him to ride with them, but with Amiri’s resistance and the confusion of the gang, the kidnap was prevented.
