Alberto Gonzalez visits Iraq to meet with political leaders, and visit the tribunal that's trying Saddam Hussein. The visit comes amid renewed violence in Iraq.

Scores died Monday — most of them during fighting between the Iraqi army and Shiite militiamen in a town south of Baghdad. There's also been a sharp increase in the number of U.S. troops killed. At least 10 have died since the weekend.
