Witnesses Tell One Haditha Victim's Story

Prime Minister al-Maliki says there will be a full investigation into the incident that left at least 24 people dead in the town of Haditha. Residents claim their neighbors died at the hands of U.S. Marines.

Despite the U.S. military's attempts to investigate the incident and possibly prosecute the Marines involved, it might be too late to repair the damage. NPR's Philip Reeves tells the story of one of the victims, a young man named Marwan.
