Host Jacki Lyden talks to NPR's Ivan Watson in Baghdad about today's developments in Iraq. A bomb blast in Najaf killed three people. A prominent Shiite cleric was apparently the target, but escaped with minor injuries. Meanwhile, the International Committee of the Red Cross is scaling back operations in Baghdad because of the lack of security.
