For the second time in a week, American troops open fire on anti-American protesters in Fallujah, killing at least one person and injuring 15. A U.S military spokesman says soldiers fired after demonstrators threw rocks and fired shots at a U.S. compound. The incident comes hours after Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld arrives in Iraq to meet with American troops. Hear NPR's Scott Simon.
