Kurds face new dangers with gains in Iraq

Deadly bombings near checkpoint manned by Kurdish forces highlight downside of their takeover of Kirkuk.

At least 31 people have been killed in suicide car bombings near Kirkuk in northern Iraq. The attacks targeted a checkpoint manned by Kurdish forces. The Kurds moved into the oil city after the Iraqi army abandoned its posts in the face of the Sunni-led rebellion, which began last month. And as the Kurds take new territory, they are facing new dangers.
