Kurdish security forces stopped the speaker of parliament in Iraq's Kurdish north from entering its capital Monday in an escalating political crisis destabilizing the region at war with ISIS militants.The KDP, which controls Irbil, accuses the Gorran party to which the speaker belongs of provoking violent protests in which five people died.The crisis is reinforcing old divisions in the Kurdish region, which used to have two separate administrations, one run by the KDP in Irbil and Dahuk, and the other controlled by the Patriotic Union of Kurdistan in Sulaimaniyah.
