Five people were killed and at least 10 wounded in a rocket or bomb attack near a polling station in a northern district of the Iraqi capital today,security officials said.

“Five people were killed and 10 others wounded by a Katyusha rocket which landed on a residential building” in Hurriyah,said Baghdad Operations Command in a statement.

An interior ministry official,in a differing account of the attack,said five people died and 22 others were wounded as a homemade bomb struck around 500 metres (yards) from a polling station.

The polling station,however,was not being used in today’s early voting for soldiers,prisoners and the sick ahead of Sunday’s parliamentary election.
