260 Attacks in Iraq on Election Day

We previously noted that the WSJ had reported that U.S. officials recorded more than 175 attacks on sites in Iraq on election day. 

Now, we hear from the Washington Post that this number increased by nearly 50%:

"Across the country, insurgents launched 260 attacks against targets of all kinds, including U.S. military and Iraqi security forces, officials said. Yet the casualty count -- 45 dead, about 100 wounded -- did not rank among the highest one-day totals."
