Stopped short of his target by a barrier and a hail of bullets, a suicide bomber's car explodes near a hotel filled with foreigners, including many Americans. At least six people are killed and dozens wounded outside the Baghdad Hotel, where members of Iraq's Governing Council were also believed to be staying. Hear NPR's Deborah Amos.
