Baghdad, Iraq (July 3, 2014): Amidst the worst situation in Iraq, armed fighters of the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS) on Thursday moved all Indian nurses in Tikrit to an undisclosed location. Ministry of External Affairs Spokesperson Syed Akbaruddin claimed they were safe and unharmed so far. He further claimed that the MEA is in touch with interlocutors on the ground.
