"Unidentified gunmen driving a civilian vehicle kidnapped two preparatory school students in Talkeef district, northern Mosul," the source, who requested anonymity, told Aswat al-Iraq-Voices of Iraq- (VOI).

The two students were on their way to sit their end-of-term exams, the source explained, adding that an investigation is currently underway to probe the reasons behind the abduction.
