Kidnapping and terrorism are just some of the most common crimes committed in Iraq. You can often hear on TV or read in a newspaper that in this or that part of Iraq armed criminals robbed someone or stole something. All these things happen even by day. Look through the official sites that keep travellers informed about what’s going on in Iraq to be sure that it is safe to travel there. If possible, put off your trip. The most dangerous provinces are Kirkuk, Salah-Al-Din, Anbar, Ninewah and Diyala.
