Israel - Gaza
Israeli forces launched a second incursion into Gaza today, destroying a Palestinian police station. This incursion was smaller and briefer than yesterday's. Meanwhile, the Israeli press accuses Prime Minister Ariel Sharon of buckling under U.S. pressure because he unexpectedly called off yesterday's incursion when Secretary of State Colin Powell criticized it as "excessive and disproportionate." Robert Siegel talks with NPR's Jennifer Ludden.
