Under an emerging plan to end the siege of Fallujah, U.S. Marines pull back from some positions, to be replaced by a newly formed Iraqi security force commanded by one of Saddam Hussein's former generals. Fighting continues in parts of Fallujah, and two Marines were killed in a bombing outside the town. NPR's Anne Garrels reports.
