After the kidnapping of a German woman in Baghdad, the Federal Foreign Office convened a crisis team. The Federal Foreign Office has started to look into the case in order to "find a solution that could secure the person concerned and their well-being," said Foreign Minister Heiko Maas (SPD) on a visit to Greece on Tuesday. He did not want to comment further on the case.

According to information from Iraqi security circles, the German Hella Mewis was dragged into a car and kidnapped on Monday evening in front of her office in the center of the Iraqi capital. The kidnapping on the street occurred near a police station, but the police did not intervene. The Iraqi Ministry of the Interior also formed a special staff with intelligence and crime experts to investigate the case, a spokesman said. Foreigners have been kidnapped in Iraq in recent months.
