U.N. Envoy, Iraqi Leaders Wrap Election Talks

A senior U.N. envoy wraps up a week of talks with Iraqi leaders with an apparent consensus on the need for elections later this year to choose members of a transitional national assembly. The fate of U.S. plans to transfer sovereignty to an interim Iraqi government by the end of June remain in doubt. NPR's Deborah Amos reports from Baghdad.
