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.
