Representatives from Sunni and Shiite groups in Iraq agreed on a road map to peace during secret talks that ended Monday in Finland, organizers said. The four-day meeting brought together 16 delegates from the feuding groups to study lessons learned from successful peacemaking efforts in South Africa and Northern Ireland.
