Sunnis are feeling left out of the Iraqi constitution talks:
The Sunni Arabs said they had been invited to just one meeting with other community negotiators since last Monday, when the previous deadline expired. The statement urged the United States, the United Nations and the international community to intervene to prevent a draft constitution moving forward without unanimous agreement, "which would make the current crisis more complicated".

An Iraqi government spokesman suggested that if the factions cannot agree on a draft by tonight, the government may have to amend the interim constitution yet again to extend the deadline to prevent the dissolution of parliament.
