Iraq Misses Deadline for Constitution
Iraq Misses Deadline for Constitution

BAGHDAD, Iraq - Iraq (news - web sites)'s U.S.-picked leaders failed to meet a Saturday deadline for adopting an interim constitution, but were expected to find compromise soon on contentious issues including the role of Islamic law and the status of women.

An advisor to Governing Council member Adnan Pachachi said members met late into the night and resumed talks early Sunday morning.

But, said Feisal Istrabdi, a member of the constitutional drafting committee, nothing official had been decided. Although he added the talks were still ongoing. When asked if a constitution could be unveiled later Sunday, he said "it's possible."

A morning update on the talks was postponed, said Hameed al-Kafaei, a Governing Council spokesman.
