Airstrikes on Iraq

Audio will be available later today.

NPR's Steve Inskeep reports that US airplanes patroling the "no-fly" zone over northern Iraq attacked an Iraqi anti-aircraft missile battery after it fired at the US planes. The US pilots took evasive action, then returned to fire missiles at the Iraqi battery. Iraq said four Iraqi soldiers were killed and seven wounded.
