Berg Services Set

A private memorial for slain American Nick Berg is set for today at a synagogue in West Chester, Pennsylvania.

The 26-year-old telecommunications businessman was kidnapped in Iraq last month and later beheaded. Family members have declined to discuss burial arrangements, while they pursue information on Berg's death.

The Bergs say they want to know if the government had received an offer to trade Iraqi prisoners for their son. On the videotape of his death, Berg's killers say a trade offer was rejected, but US officials have said they knew of no such offer.
