US storms Iran consulate in Arbil

Iran says five members of the consulate have been arrested.

    A Kurdish TV station said Kurdish security forces took over the building after the Americans left the area.
     
    In December, US forces in Baghdad arrested a number of Iranians they said were suspected of planning attacks on Iraqi security forces, including diplomats who were later turned over to Iraqi authorities.
     
    US officials have repeatedly accused Iran of interfering in Iraqi affairs.
