uh, vote and die?

some sunni party outposts in iraq have been attacked, a day before voting on a referendum is to occur.

Many Sunni parties oppose the text, and have called on Iraqis to boycott the poll or vote "No".

Earlier this week, the Islamic Party said it would encourage Sunnis to support the constitution after Shia and Kurdish political leaders agreed to consider further revisions after elections in December.

Sunni leaders fear the current proposals may lead the country to split, with a Kurdish north and Shia south, depriving Sunni Arabs of access to the country's oil resources.
