  • 2nd LD-Writethru: Kurdish security forces capture assassin of Turkish diplomat

Security services in Iraq's semi-autonomous Kurdish region said on Saturday they had arrested the brother of a lawmaker serving in the Turkish parliament for the assassination of a Turkish diplomat in the Iraqi Kurdish regional capital Erbil.

The head of the US State Department, Mike Pompeo, expressed condolences to Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu over the terrorist attack against Turkish diplomats in Iraqi Irbil, the official representative of the State Department Morgan Ortagus reported.

On May 27, Turkey launched Operation Claw against the PKK in the Hakurk region of northern Iraq.

Other air strikes Thursday night targeted "PKK bases and members" in the Makhmur area south of Iraq's northern city of Mosul, wounding two in a displacement camp, local sources told AFP.

The statement did not give further details, but said the suspect was already wanted by security agencies in Iraq's Kurdish region.

The statement said that the person in the photographs was the alleged culprit who fired on Wednesday at the Turkish consulate staff in Erbil.

"Our struggle against terror will continue with growing determination until the last terrorist is neutralized and the blood of our martyrs are avenged", Akar said. There was no claim of responsibility although suspicion fell on Kurdish militants, who operate in parts of Iraq's Kurdish region and have waged an insurgency against Turkey.

The HDP, the country's second largest opposition group, is regularly accused by President Recep Tayyip Erdogan of links to Turkey's outlawed separatist Kurdistan Workers' Party (PKK).
