Militant Group in Iraq Denies Killing U.S. Marine

Conflicting reports have emerged regarding a U.S. Marine held hostage in Iraq. The Lebanese-born corporal, Wassef Ali Hassoun, is being held by militants whose website posted a claim Saturday that he was beheaded by the Army of Ansar al-Sunna. The group has since denied killing him. NPR's Philip Reeves reports.
