An Iraqi court has ordered the arrest of four people accused of setting fire to a storage site housing ballot boxes from a May parliamentary election, state television said on Monday.

Three of the suspects are policemen and one is an employee of the Independent High Elections Commission, state TV said. The storage site caught fire on Sunday.

Parliament had last week mandated a manual recount of the election after a number of political parties alleged fraud.
