Tehran (KNA) - At least four members of the pro-government Popular Mobilization Units have lost their lives and three others sustained injuries when a bomb went off in Iraq's central province of Salahuddin as voting is underway across the country to elect the next parliament.

Colonel Mohammed al-Jubouri, a provincial police source, said the explosion took place on Saturday as voluntary fighters, better known by the Arabic name Hashd al-Sha’abi, were securing roads leading to polling centers in Mes'hag district, located some 50 kilometers north of the provincial capital Tikrit.

The development came a day after a joint force from Iraqi army forces and Hashd Sha’abi fighters raided a hideout of Daesh Takfiri terrorists in Rufai'at area, situated some 80 kilometers southwest of Tikrit, killing six bombers wearing explosive belts.
