NPR's Alex Chadwick talks with BBC correspondent Jim Muir about a massive car bombing Monday in the Iraqi city of Hilla that killed more than 100 people and injured many more. They also discuss the recent capture of deposed Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein's half-brother in Syria. Sabawi Ibrahim al-Hassan is believed to be a leading figure in the Iraqi insurgency.
