Sixteen Turkish workers were kidnapped by masked men in Baghdad, Iraq's interior ministry said on Wednesday.

The workers were taken in the northeastern district of Habibiya early on Wednesday, ministry spokesman Brigadier General Saad Maan told Reuters.

Last year 46 Turkish citizens were seized by ISIL militants in Mosul, but were released unharmed after more than three months in captivity.
