Iraqis reach last-minute election deal; February vote possible

The Iraqi parliament approved a revised elections law that expands the parliament from 275 to 325 seats, and redistributes them among the country's 18 provinces to satisfy sparring religious sects and ethnic groups. No final date for the elections was set, but the United Nations has proposed that they take place Feb. 27.
