Iraq Family Seeks Compensation for Son's Death

A Baghdad family whose 12-year-old son was killed by U.S. soldiers last summer is trying to find a legal avenue to file for compensation. The U.S. Army says the family has been paid $3,500.00. The family denies that. No independent court is available to hear the dispute. NPR's Ari Shapiro reports.
