A rocket hits the U.S. Embassy compound in Baghdad, killing two Americans and wounding four others. Polling stations across the country were attacked, and a suicide bomber who struck near the Iranian border. Nevertheless, Shia Muslims in Baghdad say they're determined to vote. Fewer Sunnis are expected to turn out.
