In another incident a suicide bomber blew up his explosive vest at the entrance of a polling station in the city of Baiji, some 220 km north of Baghdad, killing two policemen and injuring seven civilians.

Seven roadside bombs went off separately near several polling stations in Dibis town Wednesday, some 45 km northwest of Kirkuk, killing two civilians and wounding two army officers and a soldier, a police source said.
