This is coolbert:
The capture of a consulate, the taking of hostages including diplomatic personnel of any nation very sinister indeed.
"ISIS storms Turkish consulate in Mosul, takes 80 hostages" 11 June.
"Al Qaeda-Iraq stormed the Turkish Consulate in Mosul Wednesday and took 48 hostages including the consul and three children."
ISIS [the rebels in Iraq] also referred to as ISIL. Controversial if ISIL is actually Al Qaeda inspired or affiliated. This is not clear.
