Insurgents make coordinated attacks in half a dozen Iraqi cities, mostly in the so-called Sunni triangle. More than 80 people, including three U.S. soldiers, were killed in the attacks, and many more wounded. The intensified violence comes less than a week before the U.S. transfer of authority to the new Iraqi interim government. NPR's Emily Harris reports.
