KIRKUK — The security forces found a bomb in one of Hashd al-Shaabi member’s car in central Kikruk, and therefore they arrested him.
Kirkuk Security Department (Asayish) said in a statement that they arrested someone last night who was carrying a Hashd al-Difaa identity card because a bomb was found in his car.
The statement reads that the security forces seized a bomb at a checkpoint in Huzayran-1 district in central Kirkuk which was found in a car. The security members defused the bomb and arrested the driver who is a member of Hashd al-Difaa, a Hashd al-Shaabi-affiliated group.
Kirkuk Governor, Najmadin Karim, previously said in a press conference that people who were carrying Hashd al-Shaabi identity cards have kidnapped civilians in the province.
