Iraq’s Kurds vote amid regional tensions

Share  ·   print   ·  

Iraqi Kurds voted on Saturday in their first election in four years as their autonomous region grapples with disputes with Baghdad and as fellow Kurds fight bloody battles in neighbouring Syria. The election for the region’s Parliament comes as turmoil roiling West Asia has raised renewed questions about the political future of the Kurdish nation as a whole. The Kurds are spread across a number of neighbouring states, where they have long faced hostile governments but have found increasing space to pursue their aspirations to run their own affairs. — AP
