U.S.: 'Noose is Tightening' Around Saddam

U.S. forces raid a Baghdad villa where Saddam Hussein was believed to have sought refuge. At least five Iraqis are killed during the incident, which follows a similar attack on Thursday on a farmhouse in Tikrit, Saddam's hometown and power base. The U.S. military says the "noose is tightening" around the deposed Iraqi dictator. Hear NPR's Eric Westervelt.
