The looting and chaos sweeping several Iraqi cities raise concerns among humanitarian groups. They say they cannot get supplies to Iraqis when there's no security, and the U.S. military is reluctant to act as a police force. The Bush administration is asking its allies to supply police officers who can help restore law and order. NPR's Michele Kelemen reports.
