Fire at Baghdad ballot paper depot

A fire has been brought under control at Iraq’s biggest ballot paper storage depot after calls for an election recount. Votes for the eastern district of the Iraqi capital, Baghdad, were being held in the depot. Officials say some ballot boxes could have been in a warehouse that burnt down but most were safe. Last month’s legislative elections were won by an alliance headed by Shia Muslim cleric Moqtada Sadr. Amid allegations of fraud, the outgoing parliament ordered a recount of about 10 million votes.
