Kurds drawn into clashes with Sunni rebels

Kurds are fighting Sunni rebels as they try to secure the borders of a potential independent state.

    Iraqi Kurds have been involved in heavy clashes with Sunni rebel groups in the eastern province of Diyala.

    Kurdish military leaders say their target is to reach the Hamrin mountains, which they consider the natural boundary of their homeland, but achieving that goal has been costly.
