A large Iraqi family has been caught in the fighting between U.S. Marines and Iraqi insurgents. Marines have prevented 63-year-old businessman Hajji Abbas and the 100 members of his extended family from moving about freely. Abbas's 8-year-old niece was also killed by Iraqi fire aimed at the Marines. Eric Niiler of member station KPBS reports from Fallujah.
