Yet Another delay in Iraqi Constitution

Talks aimed at persuading Sunni Arabs to back the text of a new Iraqi constitution are to continue on Friday, the country's parliament speaker says.

Hajim Hassani made the announcement as a third deadline passed with no deal.

Earlier, the prime minister's spokesman said some changes had been made. But Sunnis remain opposed to federalism and a negotiator saw no prospect of a deal.
