Four others were wounded in the attack on the city’s demarcation line, according to Jowan Ibrahim, the commander of the Kurdish police known as the Asayish.

 

It was not immediately clear who carried out the attack, but the Islamic State (IS) group has claimed previous bombings in the mainly Kurdish city.
