4. AP: Insurgents Bomb Polling Places in Iraq
BAGHDAD, Iraq - A suicide bomber detonated explosives strapped to his body in front of a police station in a Kurdish town near the Iranian border, killing eight people on the eve of Iraq (news - web sites)'s crucial national election, Iraqi and U.S. officials said. Insurgents blasted polling places in at least eight cities.


In Baghdad, bursts of heavy machine gun fire rattled through central districts at midday, and several heavy detonations shook the downtown area in the afternoon. American fighter jets roared through the skies in a show of force.


Iraqi police and soldiers set up checkpoints through streets largely devoid of traffic. Seven American soldiers were killed Friday in the Baghdad area, including two pilots who died in the crash of their OH-58 Kiowa Warrior helicopter.


West of the capital, in the insurgent bastion of Ramadi, five Iraqis with hands tied behind their backs were found slain Saturday on a city street. One of the bodies was decapitated. Militants accused them of working for the Americans.
