Iraq Election Results Announced in Days

BAGHDAD (AP) - The head of Iraq's election commission says results to the country's historic election will be announced in a few days.

He tells The Associated Press that the preliminary results will be announced within two or three days, most likely on Thursday.

The commissioner says turnout figures could be announced today,
but declined to comment further.

Around the country Iraqis recovered from the election, removing campaign posters and burying those who died in the violence the day
before.

The election is seen as a key test of whether Iraq can put behind it the divisive sectarian tension that almost tore the country apart.

The election will also determine who will lead the country as U.S. troops go home.
