Masum Is Named President of Iraq

The Iraqi parliament today elected Kurdish politician Fuad Masum as the new president of Iraq.

The vote for president -- a largely ceremonial post -- was delayed for a day when the Kurdish bloc requested more time to select a candidate. They named Masum as their pick late Wednesday. (AP, 24 July)
