American airstrikes destroy a house in Fallujah that U.S. authorities say was used by fighters linked to al Qaeda. At least 20 people died. U.S. officials say it was a safe house for fighters loyal to Abu Musab al-Zarqawi, the Jordanian-born militant. Hear NPR's Andrea Seabrook and NPR's Deborah Amos.
