Clashes, Bombings Leave 108 Dead, 95 Wounded Across Iraq

At least people 108 were killed and 95 more were wounded. Many militants were killed not only in Anbar province but also killed near Baghdad and into Diyala province.

The electoral commission said that voting would not occur in areas of Anbar province where clashes are ongoing. Anbar citizens who have found safe shelter elsewhere will be allowed to cast their votes at their new locations, but election employees and equipment will not be put into jeopardy in parts of Anbar. Some fear that Sunnis might take this as further proof of their disenfranchisement.
