Sunni and Shi'a: What's the Difference?

We hear the terms daily in newscasts but do we really understand the difference between the Sunni and Shi'a branches of Islam?

Yvonne Haddad, professor of the history of Islam and Christian-Muslim relations at the Alwaleed bin Talal Center for Muslim-Christian Understanding at Georgetown University, explains the difference between Sunni and Shi'a, the two branches of Islam in a two-minute video prepared for Odyssey Networks, an initiative that connects religion with current events.
