Host Bob Edwards talks with NPR's Peter Kenyon about the killing of a US diplomat in Amman, Jordan, and the political climate in the West bank. Yesterday, a Palestinian attacker killed three Israeli soldiers and himself when the bomb he was carrying detonated in a struggle with the soldiers. Also today, a meeting of the Palestinian Council in Ramallah was delayed.
