Marines Nearing Baghdad Face Little Resistance

U.S. Marines close in on Baghdad from the southeast, as the Iraqi army continues to take large losses and thousands more soldiers surrender. U.S. troops see no signs of major resistance, but sporadic fighting by Iraqi paramilitary forces continues to erupt outside the city. NPR's Mike Shuster reports.
