Officials in Iraq\'s Kurdistan Region say the central government in Baghdad is blocking wages for hundreds of thousands of Kurdish workers. Iraq\'s Kurdish Deputy Prime Minister Roj Nuri Shawais has called on Kurdish members of the Baghdad cabinet to resign if the problem continues. Kurdistan\'s government says it\'s cutting costs and even salaries of senior officials to help pay for monthly wages of more than $700m. MPs in Baghdad say the money has been withheld because Kurdistan is starting independent oil exports via Turkey.
