The search continues for the two-man crew of a U.S. helicopter that went down Sunday near the Iraqi town of Mosul. The chopper crashed while going to the aid of a soldier — who remains missing — whose patrol boat capsized in the Tigris River. Elsewhere over the weekend, bombing attacks killed six U.S. soldiers and four Iraqis. Hear NPR's Emily Harris.
