DUHOK, Kurdistan region 'Iraq', More liquor stores have been torched in Duhok as riots continue to rage through the governorate.

A number of young men set fire to four alcohol stores in the town of Deraluk and broke into a number of other stores to smash liquor bottles.

"Last night, at around 2000 local time (1700 GMT) 20 to 30 men attacked two liquor stores and set fire to four others," Mahmoud Nheli, a freelance journalist in Deraluk told AKnews.

Police rushed to the scene, arresting four people for arson.

The attacks come as president of Kurdistan Region visited the area on Sunday to urge calm and tolerance. He promised to bring those responsible for the attack to justice.

This latest spate of violence flies in the face of religious leaders who Saturday joined together to call for peace. The Kurdistan Muslim Scientists Union met with Christian leaders and officials from the Ministry of Endowments and Religious Affairs two days ago asking for the situation to calm down.
