The northern Iraqi city of Mosul falls to U.S. forces and Kurdish fighters as Iraqi defenders withdraw. And the murder of two Muslim clerics — knifed to death in a melee in the holy city of Najaf — ruins an attempt at reconciliation of figures considered important to a postwar Iraq. Hear NPR's Bob Edwards and NPR's Nick Spicer.
