Northern Iraq Update: Mosul

NPR's Ivan Watson reports that U.S. forces are working hard to win public support in Mosul -- the city where American troops have met their greatest resistance. Tensions are running high in this northern Iraqi city, long a bastion of Arab nationalism and considerable support for Saddam Hussein. The influx of Kurds has the Arab majority edgy, and they're taking out their frustrations on U.S. troops.
