  UN says yes to US plan for Iraq
Updated 17 October 2003, 07.53
The UN Security Council votes on the resolution
The United Nations Security Council has voted to support a US plan on who will be in charge of Iraq in the future.

The US will still stay in charge for the time being, but will hand things over to the Iraqi people as soon as they can.

The US had hoped that other countries might help out with money and troops, but Germany, France and Russia said no.

But now the resolution has been supported some other countries may feel happier about helping out in Iraq.

People unhappy with the way things are working at the moment want dates about when power might be given to the Iraqis.

They also want the United Nations to play a much bigger role in things - something the US is less keen on.

But the resolution does ask Iraqi leaders to draw up a plan for a new constitution and elections by 15 December.
