Then, are militants controlling the hospitals? We talk to CBS News’ Chief Foreign Correspondant Lara Logan in Baghdad about radical Shi’a militias who base their operations out of the ER. Listen now to Wren Elhai’s report.
Finally, this week a disturbing new report raises the number of Iraqi civilians believed killed since the start of the war–to 655,000. Listen now to Eva Barboni’s report.
