Iraqi panel orders vote recount in Baghdad

A panel on Monday ordered a recount of ballots cast in Baghdad in Iraq's March 7 election, raising the chance of a reversal in the results that gave a cross-sectarian group backed by minority Sunnis a slim lead.

 

Electoral commissioner Hamdiya al-Husseini said the manual recount would begin immediately but she was not sure how long it would take. (Reuters)
