Updates from Kabul, Kandahar, Islamabad, Istanbul, and Baghdad

Early Sunday morning, CNN had the International feed running on Domestic in order to cover President Obama's speech in Prague. Ralitsa Vassileva spoke with Atia Abawi in Kabul and Reza Sayah in Islamabad for their reactions to the speech.

First, Atia discusses the likely reaction to the President's pledge to wrap up "loose nukes":

In the second part, Reza discusses the portion of the speech addressed to Iran:

This morning, Reza Aslan spoke to Kiran Chetry from Istanbul, as the President spoke in Ankara. They had some serious audio problems during the transmission, but it's always worth listening to Reza even if you can only hear every other word:

This morning, Frederik spoke with Betty Nguyen about a number of car bombs that went off in Baghdad today:

Tony Harris also spoke with Frederik about the importance of Turkey to the US military forces in Iraq, especially to the planned withdrawal:

It was too bad about the audio problems with Reza.
I am anxious for his new book to come out.
