U.S. Troops Detain Suspected Saddam Loyalists

In a series of raids near Baghdad, American soldiers arrest two dozen suspected Saddam loyalists, including one "targeted leader," the U.S. military says. Despite continuing violence in the country, there are occasional moments of relief. At an Iraqi-sponsored event, Iraqis and U.S. soldiers enjoy an evening of traditional Iraqi music. Hear NPR's Jim Wildman.
