Iraq Update: Death Threat for Interim Prime Minister

NPR's Madeleine Brand talks to Edward Wong of The New York Times about an assassination threat aimed at the interim prime minister for Iraq, Iyad Allawi. The threat came in a taped message on a radical Islamic Web site one day after the beheading of a South Korean translator by radical Islamic militants, who demanded South Korea abandon its plan to add troops to the U.S.-led military coalition.
