More jihadist disruption of Iraqi voting. From AP, with thanks to Xliberty:
An Australian polling station for Iraqi exiles voting in their homeland’s historic election was closed for an hour on Saturday after a riot broke out and a suspicious bag prompted a bomb scare.
Bernie Hogan, the head of Australia’s overseas voting program, said the riot erupted when a group of some 20 protesters started yelling insults at voters leaving the polling center, which is in a Sydney neighborhood dominated by Iraqi Shi’ites.
Hogan said the protesters – who had been granted a permit to stage their action – were holding up the same black flag with white lettering that has appeared as a backdrop in videos released by Iraqi insurgents featuring foreign hostages begging for their lives.
That would be the battle flag of jihad, the black flag of Islam.
