Iraqis Name New President

BAGHDAD, Iraq (AP) - The Iraqi parliament chose Kurdish leader Jalal Talabani as the country's new interim president Wednesday, reaching out to a long-repressed minority and bringing the country closer to its first democratically elected government in 50 years.

His deputies will be former President Ghazi Yawer, a Sunni Arab, and Finance Minister Adel Abdul Mahdi, who is Shia. The presidential team will nominate the key role of prime minister who will lead Iraq until new polls in December.
