Truck drivers seized in Iraq released to Turkish officials- UPDATED

A group of 32 Turkish truck drivers seized in Iraq by Islamist militants three weeks ago have been handed over to Turkish diplomats and will be flown to Ankara on Thursday evening, Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoglu told a news conference.

The drivers had been abducted last month after Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) militants swept into Iraq and captured the northern city of Mosul.
