Heavily armed Iraqi Kurdish peshmerga fighters hold a post in the mountains between the towns of Tuz Khurmatu and Khanaqin, on the border of the Diyala and Sulaimaniya provinces, on November 22, 2012. Iraq's parliament speaker pushed to ease Arab-Kurd tensions on a visit to Iraqi Kurdistan, as the two sides traded accusations about reinforcements being sent to disputed areas. Tensions are high in areas of northern Iraq that the autonomous Kurdish region wants to incorporate over the strong objections of Baghdad, and there is a threat of conflict between Arab and Kurdish security forces.
