Sources from the Accord Committee of the Constitution Drafting Assembly (CDA) confirmed that they postponed today’s meeting to next Sunday as a result of what they described as security threats.

Media sources said the postponement came after statements by pro-Hefter media stating that "The constitution will only be revealed on a pool of blood".

The sources added that the Chairman of the committee has requested a postponement of the meeting until adequate protection is provided to its members, noting that the committee will have to relocate meetings to another city if the situation remains unsafe.
