Over 150 Dead in Iraq in One of Deadliest Weekends Since U.S. Invasion
This weekend marked one of the deadliest in Iraq since the U.S. invasion began
more than two years ago. In three days of suicide attacks, more than 150 people
have been killed with nearly 300 wounded. We go to Baghdad to speak with Patrick
Cockburn of the London Independent.

Three Women, Palestinian Christian, Muslim and Israeli Jew on Life Under
Occupation
As Israel prepares for a possible ground offensive in Gaza and Hamas says
it will halt attacks, we speak with three women: Dr. Jumana Odeh, a Muslim Palestinian
who lives in Jerusalem and is the Director of the Palestinian Happy Child Center;
Michal Sagi, a Jewish Israeli who is active with Checkpoint Watch, a women’s
human rights monitoring group and Rana Khoury, a Christian Palestinian who is
Deputy General Director of the International Center of Bethlehem.
