Mosul: Suspected ISIS fighters kidnapped 40 Indian construction workers fleeing from cross-fire in the war zone near here. Some Malayalees too are employed here. The Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi-led Iraqi incarnation of Al Qaeda has run over northern Iraq and captured Mosul and Tikrit, killing hundreds of Shia troops. The government has dispatched Suresh Reddy, former ambassador to Iraq, to Mosul to strengthen the Indian Mission, which is trying to help Indians in violence-affected areas. “At this stage we have no reports, no confirmation of any Indian national being involved in any violent accident,” External Affairs Ministry spokesperson Syed Akbaruddin said.
