NPR's Neal Conan and Scott Horsley discuss the Pentagon's explicit denial that its forces targeted a civilian market area in Baghdad. An explosion there killed at least 30 people. Initial reports indicated the blast may have been caused by an errant U.S. cruise missile. Horsley also details how a massive sand storm is grounding air combat missions.
