The crisis group set up to run Iraq's northern province of Nineveh has said that two people responsible for the deadly sinking of a ferryboat in Tigris River were arrested.

Obeid Ibrahim Ali and his son Ryyan Obeid Ibrahim, owners of a tourist island that the ferryboat headed to, were arrested in the city of Erbil, capital of Iraq's semi-autonomous region of Kurdistan, in coordination with the Kurdish regional authorities, Najim al-Jubouri, commander of Nineveh's Operations Command.

The crisis group, comprised of a university professor and two military commanders, was formed a week ago by Iraqi Prime Minister Adel Abdul Mahdi to temporarily run Nineveh following the ferry sinking incident after the parliament sacked the governor and his two deputies.
