Shafaq News/ Security authorities in al-Sulaymaniyah shall release Shafaq News Agency correspondent to the governorate, Abbas Arkwazi, who was detained while covering the students' demonstrations.

The head of Metro Center for Journalists Rights and Advocacy, Rahman Gharib, told Shafaq News Agency that the issue of the detained journalists was resolved after an initiative by Kurdistan's Deputy Prime Minister, Qubad Talabani, who contacted the relevant authorities.

"The legal proceedings will be completed soon, and the arrestees shall be released today," he said.

For its part, Shafaq News Agency appreciates the efforts of the Deputy Prime Minister's bureau and Metro Center for Journalists Rights and Advocacy, particularly its founder Rahman Gharib, in this regard.

Four journalists have gone missing while covering the students' demonstrations in al-Sulaymaniyah, Metro Center for Journalists Rights and Advocacy said on Wednesday.

The head of the Center, Rahman Gharib, told Shafaq News Agency that the fate of three journalists, in addition to Shafaq News Agency's correspondent to al-Sulaymaniyah Abbas Mohammad Arkzawi, is unknown.
