Iraqis React to Berg Murder

NPR's Eric Westervelt in Baghdad reports on reaction among Iraqis to the beheading of American businessman Nicholas Berg. A video of the beheading by masked militants was carried on some Arabic language satellite television networks. Many Iraqis say they were horrified by the act, which they called "un-Islamic."
