Killing of New Hamas Leader Outrages Palestinians

An Israeli helicopter missile strike kills the new leader of the Palestinian group Hamas, Abdel Aziz Rantisi, and two others. Outraged Palestinians storm into the streets. Israeli authorities say Rantisi was an architect of suicide bombings and terrorism. A suicide attack earlier in the day killed an Israeli boarder guard. NPR's Julie McCarthy reports.
