Gonzalez Visits Iraq as Violence Flares Again

Alberto Gonzalez visits Iraq to meet with political leaders, and visit the tribunal that's trying Saddam Hussein. The visit comes amid renewed violence in Iraq.

Scores died Monday -- most of them during fighting between the Iraqi army and Shiite militiamen in a town south of Baghdad. There's also been a sharp increase in the number of U.S. troops killed. At least 10 have died since the weekend.
