    The governments of Iraq, Turkey and Iran have joined ranks in announcing new measures against Iraq's Kurdistan Regional Government, or KRG.

    This follows last month's controversial referendum on the future Kurdish secession from Baghdad.

    The nonbinding vote result was celebrated by Kurds in Iranian border towns in support of a bigger Kurdish dream.
