Forty-nine Turkish citizens from the consulate — staff members and their families — are being held hostage in Mosul, the Turkish Foreign Ministry said in a statement.

Among the hostages are the consul general, Ozturk Yilmaz, diplomats, workers and special forces soldiers. 

The consulate was raided by Iraqi militants that have been making sweeping territorial gains in northern and western Iraq in recent days, said New York Times in a report yesterday.

Another group of 31 Turks — truck drivers who were delivering fuel to a power plant in Mosul — were also reported to be seized by Iraqi militants on Tuesday, officials said.

The NCRI Foreign Affairs Committee while expressing solidarity with the families of the Turkish hostages, calls for the immediate release and the saftey of the hostages.
