One Iraqi Refugee [2.26.2007]

Since the Iraq war began in 2003, more than 2 million refugees have fled that country. To date, the US has admitted only 466. But last week, Washington announced it would speed up the process for admitting Iraqi refugees. One woman hoping to enter the country is Nour al-Khal. She spoke to Dick Gordon from an undisclosed location, out of concerns for her own safety. She was shot while working with American journalist, Steven Vincent, who was killed in the assassination attempt.
