In CIA probe, Justice Dept to probe 2 deaths

The Justice Department's probe of CIA terrorist interrogation practices is entering a new phase: Attorney General Eric Holder announces there will be a full criminal investigation into the deaths of two men while they were in custody.

The attorney general says that he has accepted the recommendation of a federal prosecutor, John Durham, who has been conducting a long-running inquiry into CIA interrogation practices during the Bush administration.
