Crowds Cheer Deadly Attacks in Fallujah

Five U.S. soldiers are killed in a roadside bombing west of Baghdad. In Fallujah, four civilian foreigners -- including one American -- are killed when insurgents ambush their vehicles in Fallujah, a Sunni stronghold. Cheering crowds drag the corpses through the streets and hang them from a bridge. Hear NPR's Ivan Watson.
