Marines Battle Insurgents in Iraq

Gunmen ambush U.S. Marines on patrol in Fallujah, Iraq, sparking an hours-long gun battle. At least one Marine is reported killed, and several wounded. The city is a hotbed of anti-American sentiment and a stronghold for Saddam Hussein loyalists. NPR's Steve Inskeep reports.
