Iraqi interim Prime Minister Iyad Allawi says that if violence continues in Iraq, it may become necessary to delay a deadline to hold elections by the end of January of next year. Allawi's comments came just days before the June 30 U.S. handover of power to the new government. NPR's Deborah Amos reports.
