The U.S. government releases post-mortem photographs of Uday and Qusay Hussein in an effort to convince Iraqis that the heirs to Saddam Hussein's toppled regime were killed by U.S. forces Tuesday. Eric Westervelt reports that the photos have diminished some but not all the skepticism among Iraqis. One said only a video of the bodies would convince him. Any hope that the deaths would stem attacks on U.S. forces were short lived. Three American soldiers died Thursday when their convoy was ambushed.
