Hundreds of Kurdish protesters gathered in Cologne, Germany on Sunday to call for an independent Kurdistan, and demonstrate against the recent seizure of Kirkuk by Iraqi and allied forces.
The rally follows the capture of oil-rich Kirkuk by Iraqi-government troops and Shiite militias, who drove out Peshmerga forces and consolidated their positions close to the Kurdish capital, Erbil, last week.
