Iraq's autonomous Kurdish region has sent 6,000 reinforcements to the disputed, oil-rich city of Kirkuk.

Rudaw News, quoting Kurdish Vice President Kosrat Rasul, says the reinforcements were sent to Kirkuk in response to threats from Baghdad to attack the oil-rich city.

Meanwhile, Iraq's Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi has ruled out the use of military force against the Kurds.
