Sunnis rally against Iraq charter

Thousands of Sunni Muslims have demonstrated in the Iraqi city of Baquba to protest against the draft constitution being debated in Baghdad.

Some carried pictures of Iraq's Sunni former leader, Saddam Hussein.

The Sunnis object to several parts of the draft text agreed by Shia and Kurdish parties. But Shia leaders have said they will compromise no further.

It has emerged that US President George Bush phoned a Shia leader earlier this week urging him to seek consensus.
