CAIRO, 9 June – RIA Novosti. Three people were injured when an explosive-laden unmanned aerial vehicle crashed in the suburbs of Erbil, the capital of Iraqi Kurdistan.

According to Al Arabia TV channel, the drone crashed in Erbil, five kilometers from the US Consulate, which is under construction.
