Gunmen ambush and kill the chief of security for Iraq's northern oil fields. Ghazi Talabani is the third Iraqi official to be killed in less than a week. His murder coincides with a series of sabotage attacks on Iraq's oil pipelines that have significantly cut petroleum exports, considered critical to restoring the country's economy. Hear NPR's Emily Harris.
