U.S. officials warn of an upsurge in insurgent attacks in Iraq following a period of relative quiet. Four projectiles struck the area near the headquarters of the U.S.-led coalition in Baghdad Friday, wounding two people. A suicide bombing at a U.S. base Thursday killed one American and wounded 14 others. Hear NPR's Ivan Watson.
