A new truce has been announced that may end the U.S. siege of Fallujah. Marine commanders say their forces will pull back, and an Iraqi unit led by one of Saddam Hussein's former generals will take over the city. Clashes between the Marines and insurgents were reported soon after the plan was announced. Hear NPR's Robert Siegel and NPR's Philip Reeves.
