Video of Death Prompts Outrage in Berg's Hometown

The remains of U.S. civilian Nick Berg will be flown to the United States Wednesday, a day after an Islamist Web site posted a graphic videotape of his beheading. The video indicated the execution was in revenge for the abuse of Iraqi prisoners by U.S. troops. In West Chester, Penn., Berg's hometown, people express sorrow and outrage. NPR's Ari Shapiro reports.
