A car bomb explods in Baghdad, striking the U.N. headquarters there. Sergio Vieira de Mello, the chief U.N. official in Baghdad, is among the injured. NPR's Renee Montagne reports on Salim Lone, who worked in the U.N. complex. Lone was one of the many that were wounded or killed in today's explosion.
