A severe sandstorm in Baghdad has forced Iraqi political leaders to cancel a second day of talks aimed at breaking a deadlock over the country's draft constitution. The officials want to overcome differences on federalism, national identity and the role of Islam in time to meet an August 15th deadline to present a draft constitution. But Monday's blinding sandstorm made travel in Baghdad nearly impossible. Hundreds of city residents crowded hospitals, complaining of breathing problems. Meanwhile, an independent panel has accused the former head of the United Nations' oil-for-food program for Iraq of corruption. The committee recommends U.N. Secretary General Kofi Annan waive Benon Sevan's immunity if law enforcement authorities want to prosecute the former oil-for-food chief. Mr. Sevan denies the charges. U.N. officials say Mr. Annan has already lifted diplomatic immunity from another official accused of corruption in the program.
