U.K. Troops Face Court Martial Over Iraqi Death

The British Army's reputation comes under fire after a series of courts-martial involving British troops in Iraq. Several troops will be court-martialed for the murder of an Iraqi civilian, and another trial is in progress for the alleged abuse of Iraqi detainees by British soldiers. As NPR's Anthony Kuhn reports from London, even more cases are in the pipeline.
