Iraq orders recount of Baghdad votes

A review panel on Monday ordered a recount of ballots cast in Baghdad during Iraq's March 7 general election, raising the possibility of a change in the final results of the inconclusive vote, an official said.

The capital accounts for 68 seats in the 325-seat parliament, making it a key prize, and Shi'ite Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki's bloc had been seeking a manual recount after coming a close second in the election.

Electoral commissioner Hamdiya al-Husseini said the manual recount would begin immediately.
