Mass Grave of Civilians Uncovered in S. Iraq

A mass grave filled with the remains of more than 45 people, believed to have been executed in a 1991 Shiite Muslim uprising, is discovered in a southern Iraqi town near Najaf. The U.S. Army and international groups want to preserve the grave and the remains for possible use as evidence in human rights crimes trials. Hear NPR's Scott Simon.
