ERBIL-Hewlêr, Kurdistan region 'Iraq', — Mawloud Afand, editor of Israel-Kurdish magazine "Israel Kurd" disappeared ten days ago in Kurdistan region of Iraq. His friends say he traveled to the city of Sulaimaniyah where he was abducted by Iranian Intelligence, as reported on Israel Army Radio, and reported by Israel national news.

Afula Kurdistani-Israeli journalist Dino Daniel said Efend was warned against traveling to Sulaimaniyah, to no avail.

Mawloud Afand, the editor-in-chief of the Israel-Kurd Institute's magazine, has been missing since June 8, said Diyari Mohammed, a correspondent for the magazine in Sulaimaniyah, in the autonomous Kurdistan region of northern Iraq.

Media watchdog Reporters Without Borders expressed concern about the missing journalist.

"We fear the worst and we urge the autonomous Kurdistan Regional Government’s authorities to do everything possible to find" Afand, RSF said in a statement on its website, calling for an immediate investigation.

During a visit to Sulaimaniyah, Afand "went alone for an appointment... and disappeared," Mohammed said.

Mohammed said the president of the Israel-Kurd Institute, Dawood al-Baghistani, had been informed by the Kurdistan region's government last year that Iran wanted the magazine closed,www.ekurd.net but that Kurdistan declined to do so.

And on April 21, Iranian MP Esmaeel Kosari told Al-Alam, an Iran-based Arabic-language news channel, that Kurdistan and Azerbaijan "should know that the presence of the Zionist regime on their soil will be harmful to them."

"The neighbouring nations should not allow this regime to have any activities against Iran."

The Kurdistan regional government responded by saying: "This is not the first time that Iranian officials are saying this without presenting evidence or reasons."
