President Bush imposes economic sanctions on Syria, saying the country supports terrorism and has failed to stop anti-U.S. guerrillas from entering Iraq. The new sanctions prohibit all U.S. exports to Syria except food and medicine, ban Syrian flights to and from the United States, and restrict relations between U.S. banks and Syria's National Bank. NPR's Vicky O'Hara reports.
