U.S. Targets 'Terrorist Training Camp' in Iraq

U.S. forces launch an air and ground attack on what military officials call a "terrorist training camp" about 100 miles from Baghdad. A U.S. Army helicopter is shot down over western Iraq. North of Baghdad, U.S. troops continue their search for Iraqis still loyal to Saddam Hussein. NPR's Ivan Watson reports.
