FILE - In this Thursday, April 29, 2010 file photo, Karim al-Tamimi, a member of the Independent High Electoral Commission speaks to reporters in Baghdad, Iraq. Two Iraqi election officials said Friday they have been detained after authorities reopened a corruption case against them, a move they dismiss as an effort to pressure the panel. Faraj al-Haidari, chief of Iraq's electoral commission, said by phone Friday he is currently held at a police station after a judge's decision to reinvestigate old corruption charges against the commission. Commission official Karim al-Tamimi says he was also detained. The two spoke over cell phones to reporters. (AP Photo/Hadi Mizban,File) less
