Kurdish ambitions worry Kirkuk's Arabs

Barzani's call for referendum preparation causes concern in multi-ethnic oil city now firmly under Kurds' control.

    Iraq's Kurds look to be edging closer to full independence. Their president has asked the regional parliament to prepare for a referendum on their future.
