A suicide bomber killed six army recruits Wednesday as the U.N.'s envoy to Iraq warned that the country's election campaign would be "highly divisive" amid a yearlong surge in bloodshed.The attack came on the second day of campaigning for April 30 parliamentary polls, Iraq's first since March 2010 . Campaigns are rarely fought on individual issues, with parties instead appealing to ethnic, sectarian or tribal allegiances or trumpeting well-known personalities.A lack of effort at cross-sectarian politics could, Mladenov said, be a major issue. That did not include the province of Anbar, where militants have kept control of Fallujah, a short drive from Baghdad, for nearly three months.
