Kurds arrest five over bombing outside U.S. consulate in Erbil

ERBIL, Iraq (Reuters) - Kurdish authorities have arrested five men they say carried out a car bombing on behalf of Islamic State that killed two people outside the U.S. consulate in their autonomous region of northern Iraq.

Four of the men are Kurds from Erbil, the region's Security Council said in a statement on Tuesday, highlighting the threat posed by homegrown militants in the relatively safe region. The fifth was an Arab from elsewhere in Iraq.
