FILE - In this Thursday, Feb. 5, 2009 file photo, Faraj al-Haydari, chairman of the Independent High Electoral Commission pauses as he speaks to reporters about the results of Iraq's provincial elections 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.
