Iraqi Council Agrees on Constitution

Iraq's U.S.-appointed governing council reaches agreement on an interim constitution. The document will serve as Iraq's basic law until a permanent constitution can be drafted. Council members and those involved in drafting the constitution reached key compromises on several issues, from the influence of Islam to Kurdish demands for autonomy. NPR's Steve Inskeep reports.
