SAMARRA, Iraq (Reuters) – Insurgents have launched attacks on election offices in northern Iraq, killing two people and wounding nine six weeks before Iraqis are due to go to the polls.
Police and hospital sources said two people were killed and eight wounded on Saturday when mortars landed on an election office in Dujail, one of many around the country registering and educating potential voters ahead of the Jan. 30 election.
Among the wounded were six Iraqi National Guards, who were guarding the office against attack in the Sunni Muslim town, 30 miles north of the capital.
A mortar also landed on an election office in the oil city of Kirkuk, where ethnic tensions are running high ahead of a poll many want delayed there.
The office was closed when the mortar hit on Friday night, but a guard was seriously wounded, police said.
