Powell Cautions Against Haste in Iraq Self-Rule

In his first-ever visit to Iraq, Secretary of State Colin Powell warns against speeding up the transfer of power to Iraqis, saying the result may be an Iraqi government that fails. Meanwhile, another U.S. soldier is killed and three wounded outside the Iraqi city of Fallujah, where eight Iraqi policemen were killed by U.S. forces on Friday. NPR's Emily Harris reports.
