Amid Fighting, Iraqis Seek Najaf Cemeteries

Najaf is home to the some of the largest graveyards in the world. The city is also currently home to some fierce fighting between U.S. forces and Muqtada al-Sadr's militia. The battle, however, hasn't stopped grieving Iraqis from bringing their dead to the city for burial. NPR's Neal Conan speaks with Scott Baldauf of The Christian Science Monitor about the situation.
