    US and Iraqi security forces cordoned off streets in the northern oil-rich city of Kirkuk, Iraq, Friday, during a demonstration held by 250 Turkmen protesting the release of their kinsmen being held in US custody. Demonstrators chanted, "No, no America. Death to American spies. Down with federalism. Kirkuk is Iraq."Nejmadin Kassab, spokesman for the Turkmen Front said that there are dozens of Turkmen being held by the US, stressing that as Iraq is now a democracy it was high time for the Turkmen to be heard.Turkmen are an ethnic minority living in Kirkuk, who originate from Turkish roots and speak a Turkic language.Recent Kurdish aspirations to control Kirkuk have brought to light worries by the Turkmen that their integrity may be compromised in the region.
