State Dept. Issues Human Rights Report

The State Department issues its annual report on global human rights, spelling out what the United States is doing to advance rights in 101 countries determined to have the worst records. The document's release was delayed for two weeks, amid international outrage over the pictures of prisoner abuse by U.S. personnel in Iraq. NPR's Vicky O'Hara reports.
