Americans, Iraqis, Work to Restore Electricity

Baghdad's Al Durah power station provides electricity to about half of the city of five million. It's been shut down since it was hit by a U.S. airstrike over a week ago. Now, U.S. troops are working with Iraqi engineers to bring it back on line. NPR's Jackie Northam reports from Baghdad.
