Suicide Bomber Attacks U.S.-Allied Sheiks

In another day of scattered violence in Iraq, a suicide bomber breached tight security around a Baghdad hotel and blew himself up where Sunni sheiks allied with the U.S. in the fight against al-Qaida were meeting.

At least 12 people were killed, including a leading sheik in the Anbar Salvation Front.

Rachel Martin talks with Melissa Block.
