Afghanistan Sends Troops to Quell Fighting

The Afghan government dispatches several hundred troops to the western city of Herat, where factional fighting left more than 100 people dead Sunday. The clashes were between supporters of Herat's powerful warlord, Ismail Khan, and a government-appointed army commander accused of murdering Khan's son. NPR's Philip Reeves reports.
