A sniper kills an American soldier and several explosions rock Baghdad as U.S. forces in Iraq continue to face attacks despite a week-long military campaign to quell the violence. The U.S. civil administration says it will create a new criminal court to try those accused of inciting violence against U.S. and British military forces. NPR's Eric Westervelt reports.
