Low voter turnout stokes Iraq suspicion

Senior Sunni political leaders say credibility of recent vote in doubt due to low turnout in Anbar province.

    The results from Iraq's general elections last week are not in yet, but there is already controversy.

    Senior Sunni political leaders say the elections cannot be fair, partially due to a low voter turnout in Anbar province.

    There has been fierce fighting in the area between Iraq's army and opposition fighters.
