Riots between Kurds and Turkmen and Arabs in Kirkuk
The 5 Kurdish members of the Interim Governing Council have called for Mosul and Diyala province to be part of their greater Kurdistan region, which would have a loose Federal relationship to Baghdad. In Kirkuk, there was much flying of the Kurdish flag, on Monday, which provoked the ire of Sunni Arab and Turkmen students in the city and led to rioting with Kurds. In an unrelated Kirkuk story, US troops arrested some 36 Iraqis suspected of supporting the guerrilla actions against them, including 20 Sunni fundamentalists. (az-Zaman).
