Iraq charter talks 'breakthrough'

One of Iraq's main Sunni Arab parties will endorse the country's new constitution in Saturday's crucial referendum, a spokesman has said.
Ayad Sammarai, of the Iraqi Islamic party, said Shia and Kurdish leaders have agreed to review the charter after elections in December.

Iraqi political leaders have been negotiating for weeks to try to secure Sunni backing for the constitution.
Many Sunnis opposed the draft, fearing it could lead to the break-up of Iraq.

Meanwhile more than 50 people died in continuing violence in Iraq on Tuesday.

you know as well as i do that the constitution passing or failing will mean nothing to the insurgants

no matter what happens on saturday , our troops will still have to stay and the bombs will still go off

looks like it will get through now , though places like fallujah are expecting a 90% turnout agaisnt the constitution

i think now they have agreed to the sunni demands , the constitution will pass

but who benefits ?

my view , nobody
