More than 70 Bantu refugees from Somalia arrive in U.S. cities to begin new lives after a decade-long journey to escape civil war and ethnic strife. The refugees are the first of nearly 12,000 Somali Bantus that the United States plans to resettle over the next three years. NPR's Jennifer Ludden reports.
