U.S. Seeks Arrest of Iraqi Cleric

The confrontation between the U.S. occupation authority and Shiite cleric Muqtada al-Sadr continues to intensify after Sadr's followers attacked U.S. and other coalition forces Sunday. Amid more violence Monday, U.S. spokesmen revealed that an arrest warrant has been issued for Sadr in connection with the murder of a rival cleric last spring. NPR's Philip Reeves reports.
