Heavy snowfall hit parts of the Kurdistan region on Sunday, blanketing Soran district, near Erbil, and blocking roads in several locations.

Nearly 60cm (two feet) of snow had fallen in the pervious 24 hours in parts of the district.

Snow is not unusual in the winter in Iraq's mountainous north.

It often shuts down traffic in the winter months for days on end, halting trade and traffic with Iran and Turkey.
