BRUSSELS (Reuters) - EU countries failed on Wednesday to vote on a license extension for weedkiller glyphosate, delaying again a politically charged decision on the widely used herbicide that critics say causes cancer.

The European Commission said in a statement that the relevant committee did not vote at a meeting on Wednesday and that it would announce the date of the next meeting shortly.
