Baghdad Mayor Denies Spying for Saddam

NPR's Anne Garrels in Baghdad reports on the Mukhtar, or mayor, of one district of the Iraqi capital, appointed by Saddam Hussein's Baath Party. The Mukhtar denies that he acted as Saddam's spy in the neighborhood, and says he was only responsible for humanitarian issues. But many in the neighborhood dispute that assertion.
