BAGHDAD, Iraq - Iraqis voted Sunday in their country’s first free election in a half-century, as insurgents made good on threats of violence with bombs and mortar attacks in at least three cities. Casting his vote, President Ghazi al-Yawer called it Iraq’s first step “toward joining the free world.”

A suicide car bomber attacked an Iraqi checkpoint near a polling station in west Baghdad soon after voting began, killing a policeman, police sources said. Two Iraqi soldiers and two civilians were also wounded in the attack near the Zahraa school, used as a voting center.
