The Kurdish referendum is due to take place on 25 September 2017. The vote aims to determine whether the Kurdish population in Iraq wish to gain independence from the central government in Baghdad. The Kurdish region in Iraq is already semi-autonomous, and the population has long been campaigning for independence. The outcome is likely to be a yes vote, signalling the continued desire for independence. However, the referendum will have no immediate administrative effects. The Iraqi parliament in Baghdad is heavily opposed to the referendum. In addition, international actors have condemned the referendum and its timing.
A magnitude 7.1 earthquake has struck central Mexico, toppling dozens of buildings in the capital Mexico City. The current fatality rate is above 200 people.
