War, children and media: Iraq at the boiling point in Najaf and Baghdad,
we’ll have deep analysis of the current crisis and media shut-out in Iraq,
and we’ll go to Baghdad for a look on how this war is affecting children in
particular; plus, we’ll hear from a member of the United Nations Office of
the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs on the massacre in Burundi; we’ll
play excerpts from the radically uncompromising film documentary Hijacking
Catastrophe; and the Knight Report.
