Masked gunmen attacked a campaign headquarters and a political party office in Kirkuk, and the Iraqi tribunal looks for a replacement for the chief judge in former President Saddam Hussein's trial.

Iraqis are about to replace the judge who quit the trial of Saddam Hussein. Politicians are still waiting for their final election results. Three major political groups have been discussing who shares power and who doesn't.
