Iraq charter 'will fuel strife'

"Iraq's draft constitution has deepened the country's ethnic and sectarian rifts and is likely to fuel the insurgency, a new report says.
The text was not based on broad consent, and the country appears to be heading towards partition and civil war, the study says.

The report, by the Brussels-based International Crisis Group, calls on the US address Sunni concerns.

Iraqis are due to vote in a referendum on the draft text on 15 October.

The constitution will pass unless voters in three of Iraq's 18 provinces muster a two-thirds majority against it."
