ARBIL, Iraq, Aug 23 (Reuters) - A bomb exploded in the capital of Iraq's Kurdistan region, Arbil, on Saturday, local television network Rudaw reported.

TV footage showed firefighters dousing the charred remains of a car. A Reuters journalist earlier saw a cloud of smoke in Arbil, but it was not clear whether it was from a blast. (Reporting by Isabel Coles; Editing by Robin Pomeroy)
