A Turkish man abducted by a militant group in Iraq has been killed, the Turkish Foreign Ministry said Monday. Turkish officials had long suspected that Yildirim Tek, who was taken hostage in Iraq in July, was killed by his kidnappers. A Foreign Ministry statement said Tek's family identified a photo of a body found a month and a half ago near a road leading to Baghdad Airport as that of the missing man.
