ERBIL, July 9 (AKnews) – Erbil police have denied that a child was kidnapped in the city, adding that media reports of the case are fake.
Erbil citizen Umed Ibrahim said on some media channels that unknown armed men attacked him and his wife with bricks at 12:20am in Ayinda neighbourhood, north Erbil and after hurting the couple the men kidnapped a three-year-old child.
Ibrahim added that the attackers were driving government cars and some of them were wearing security uniforms.

The courts have yet to decide whether the child should remain with the father or the mother.
