U.N. Envoy in Talks to Shape Interim Iraqi Government

NPR's Peter Kenyon, reporting from Baghdad, reports a senior United Nations envoy has resumed talks in Baghdad aimed at selecting the members of an interim Iraqi government that would be granted limited authority by U.S. occupation authorities at the end of June. Some members of Iraq's U.S.-appointed governing council have been sharply critical of Lakhdar Brahimi's mission, saying it violates the country's interim constitution. Many, if not most, of the council members are likely to lose their jobs when the new government is formed.
