NPR's Anne Garrels reports on today's bombing in a residential neighborhood of Baghdad. Iraqi officials say two cruise missiles struck a residential and shopping area, killing as many as 30 people. It's the worst single reported instance of civilian deaths since the U.S. bombing campaign began a week ago. U.S. military officials say they are investigating the incident.
