War Update: 3rd Infantry

NPR's Michele Norris speaks with NPR's Eric Westervelt, traveling with the 3rd Infantry Division and currently positioned near Najaf, Iraq. The troops he's with have maintained their location and have experienced sporadic attacks from Iraqis in non-military vehicles. The attackers wear traditional Iraqi clothing, making it hard to differentiate between soldiers and civilians.
