12:19 PM ET - UN officials in Baghdad have said that the printing of Iraq's draft constitution will not begin Thursday as originally planned because the UN has not yet received authorization to print the document. Nicholas Haysom said Thursday that "we are awaiting a text certified by the National Assembly. We don't expect that to happen before Sunday." It is unclear whether the delay is due to parliament's failure to properly approve the text or if there have been modifications to the draft that was submitted to parliament last week. Reuters has more.
