Baghdad Has Bloodiest Day in Months

Bombings rock the Iraqi capital Monday, the first day of the Muslim holy month of Ramadan. Rocket attacks and car bombs leave at least 35 people dead and more than 200 others wounded, in the bloodiest single day in Baghdad since the fall of Saddam Hussein's regime. NPR's Deborah Amos reports.
