Iraq's Security Forces Cast Ballots for Parliament

Members of Iraq's security forces began voting Monday in the country's first election since the withdrawal of U.S. troops in late 2011.

The security forces are voting two days ahead of the rest of Iraq for the new parliament.

The lead-up to the vote has been marred by violence with Sunni militants targeting security forces and members of the nation's Shi'ite majority.

Analysts say voters Wednesday will likely cast ballots along sectarian and ethnic lines.
