HEWLÊR-Erbil, Iraq’s Kurdistan region,— A Japanese freelance journalist Kosuke Tsuneoka, who is in Iraq covering the battle to retake the Islamic State-held city of Mosul, has been detained by authorities in Iraqi Kurdistan, the Foreign Ministry confirmed Monday.
The 47-year-old journalist  was taken into custody by the Kurdish Peshmerga forces of Kurdistan Regional Government (KRG) several days ago in a Kurdish-controlled area in northern Iraq close to Mosul. He is suffering from no injuries, according to the ministry.
The KRG is fighting the IS in and around the area. Tsuneoka was apparently covering the battle there.

A Twitter account believed to be managed by Tsuneoka was last updated on Thursday of last week, with some posts indicating he is in Iraq.
The journalist previously covered the fighting in Afghanistan and Iraq. He was abducted by a militant group in Afghanistan in April 2010 and freed later in the year.
He is an acquaintance of Japanese freelance journalist Junpei Yasuda, who is believed to have been detained by a different militant group after entering civil war-torn Syria in June 2015.
