Election day

Polling day in the UK has started with a bang. A bomb blast occurred in New York in the early hours outside the British Consulate. The reported time of the explosion was at 3:35 in the morning in 3rd Avenue. FOX5 reports that the devices were “toy grenades, made to explode by someone putting gunpowder in them”. No injuries were reported and only minor damage was reported to the building. In Iraq several attacks have killed at least 23 people. In one attack a gunman killed 9 police officers in west Baghdad. In another attack a suicide bomber blew up his device in a recruitment centre, killing 13, the BBC reported today. Sky News reported 17 dead at the recruitment centre.
