Iraq's No-fly Zone

Audio for this story from Morning Edition is not available.

NPR's Tom Gjelten reports on the latest round of attacks by U-S and British jets on Iraqi air defense sites. As Iraqi pilots continue to deny the no-fly zone, the U.S. and allied aircraft are taking on a more aggressive air strike policy. Targeting installations like the elite Republican Guard Unit may be an attempt to warn Iraqi military leaders to distance themselves from Saddam Hussein.
