Turkish MP's brother arrested over Iraq shooting

Turkish diplomat Kose was killed on Wednesday at an upscale restaurant in Erbil

Iraqi Kurdish authorities announced on Saturday they had arrested two suspects involved in the murder of three people, including a Turkish diplomat, in the regional capital Arbil this week.

A Turkish soldier was killed and six were wounded in a cross-border operation in northern Iraq against the outlawed Kurdistan Workers' Party (PKK), Turkey's defence ministry said on Friday.

The diplomat was one of at least two people shot dead on Wednesday when a gunman opened fire in a restaurant where Turkish diplomats were dining.

Earlier police shared a photo of Dag, who was born in Diyarbakir, Turkey in 1992, and asked locals to help turn him in.

The shooter fled in a vehicle driven by an accomplice, two Kurdish security officials and a witness said.

Protest in South Korea against Japan
Yesterday, Kono summoned the South Korean Ambassador to Japan saying it was "deeply regrettable" that the deadline had passed. Tokyo accused South Korea of violating United Nations sanctions on the North, but provided no evidence for the claim.

Turkey's state-run Anadolu Agency claimed that two of the suspect's siblings were alleged PKK militants and that a third was a legislator from Turkey's pro-Kurdish party.

TRT World's Can Hasasu has more from Duhok, northern Iraq.

In response to the terrorist attack, Turkey on Thursday launched an air attack on Iraqi Kurdistan.

Ankara's main enemy in Iraq is the PKK group, which has based fighters in the mountainous border region, north of Erbil, during a decades-long insurgency in southeastern Turkey.

Turkish security forces also caused a complete damage to weapon emplacements and shelters used by the PKK in northern Iraq's Metina region.
