Secretary of State Colin Powell Headed Overseas

Colin Powell starts off a multi-nation trip with an effort to sweeten relations soured by the Iraq war.

The secretary of state is to meet with the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe during a visit to the Netherlands.

He's expected to repeat his message that differences with the Europeans over the war belong in the past, and that countries must now come together to rebuild Iraq.

Powell is also expected to visit Tunisia, Morocco, Algeria and Belgium.
