In northern Iraq, voters are heading to the polls today for a referendum on Kurdish independence. The governments of Iraq and Iran have both retaliated against the referendum. Iran has halted flights to and from the semi-autonomous Kurdish regions and launched wargames at the Kurdish border. Iraq also tightened its control over the region’s borders and called on countries to stop importing oil from the Kurdish areas.
