Turkey's Habur border gate with northern Iraq remains open, although tight controls have been imposed on traffic, state-owned Anadolu Agency cited Customs Minister Bulent Tufenkci as saying on Monday.

Earlier NTV and other broadcasters said Turkey had blocked access through the border gate in its southeast.

The tighter border control came as voting started in an independence referendum organised by the Kurdistan Regional Government in northern Iraq.
