BAGHDAD, Iraq - Insurgents killed eight Iraqis and a U.S. soldier in attacks Saturday and blasted polling places across the country on the eve of landmark elections, as Prime Minister Ayad Allawi's government urged Iraqis to overcome their fear of violence and vote.





The soldier from Task Force Baghdad was killed by a roadside bomb in a western district of the capital, the military said. Bursts of heavy machine gun fire rattled through central districts at midday, and several heavy explosions shook the downtown area in the afternoon. American fighter jets roared through the skies in a show of force. *
