Northern Ireland rivals agree to share power

The leading Protestant and Catholic politicians of Northern Ireland have agreed to a power-sharing accord, and are planning to form a joint government for the British province. The agreement between the (Protestant) Democratic Unionist Party, led by Ian Paisley, and the (Catholic) Sinn Fein, led by Gerry Adams, paves the way for the devolution of power by Britain to the province, and for domestic affairs to be regulated in some degree by a local assembly and executive (BBC).

Finally! Now for the Iraqis to reach a similar deal.
