Iraqi Governing Council President Killed

A suicide car bombing at a checkpoint in central Baghdad kills Izzadine Saleem, also known as Abdel-Zahraa Othman, head of Iraq's governing council and a prominent Shiite leader. Saleem's death comes six weeks before the planned transfer of political power to Iraqis and is a blow to U.S. stabilization efforts. Hear NPR's Steve Inskeep and NPR's Peter Kenyon.
