U.S.: Iraqi Gunmen Behind Attacks

U.S. officials confirm that recent attacks on an Iraqi police station and a civil defense compound in Fallujah were carried out by Iraqi gunmen -- not foreign operatives, as authorities initially believed. The mayor of Fallujah has been detained by U.S. forces, under the suspicion that he might have collaborated in the attacks. NPR's Deborah Amos reports.
