    The explosions came less than an hour before Iraq's national election commission was due to announce full resultsfrom the country's hotly-contested March 7 parliamentary election.

    Violence has dropped dramatically across Iraq since its peak in 2006 and 2007, but attacks remain common, especially in Baghdad and the restive northern city of Mosul.
