Bridge linking Erbil and Kirkuk reopens after 10 months

A bridge connecting provinces Erbil and Kirkuk in Iraqi Kurdistan was reopened on Sunday after being closed for 10 months.
The bridge was closed following clashes between Iraqi forces and Kurdish Peshmerga fighters.
The two checkpoints on the bridge are reportedly controlled by both Iraqi and Peshmerga forces, each side in charge of its own one.
Iraqi Commander of Federal Police headquarters Shaker Quinn said that the timing for cargo vehicles to use the road will be set separately from other vehicles.
