A prime suspect in last summer's terrorist bombing in Indonesia is set to go on trial soon. The suspect is charged in the bombing at the J.W. Marriott Hotel in Indonesia's capital, Jakarta. The car bomb killed 12 and injured hundreds more. Officials say a local group was responsible for the blast, but it likely had the blessing of al Qaeda. Kelly McEvers reports.
