ERBIL (Reuters) - A car bomb killed three people on Friday outside the U.S. consulate in Erbil, the capital of Iraq's Kurdistan region that is allied with Washington in a war against Islamic State, which claimed the attack.

No U.S. personnel were hurt in the blast, according to the State Department which said a "vehicle-borne improvised explosive device" exploded right outside the entrance to the heavily fortified compound.
