Iraqi Forces Take Lead in Battle Near Najaf

A major battle is triggered near Iraq's holy city of Najaf as Iraqi-led forces launch an offensive on a previously unknown militant group known as the Army of Heaven.

About 300 Iraqi militants died and a U.S. helicopter was shot down, killing two Americans on board. Andrew North of the BBC discusses the battle with Renee Montagne.
