'Friendly Fire' Hearing Underway

A hearing begins for two U.S. military pilots who bombed a Canadian unit last year in Afghanistan, killing four and wounding eight. At issue is whether the pilots' actions merit the criminal charges they face -- or constitute a mistake that should be treated less harshly. NPR's Michele Norris talks with Derek Stoffel of the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation.
