NPR's Alex Chadwick talks to Barbara Demick of The Los Angeles Times, reporting from the South Korean capital of Seoul, about that nation's reaction to the taking of a South Korean hostage in Iraq by Islamic insurgents. The hostage has been threatened with death unless South Korea reconsiders plans to send thousands of troops to bolster the U.S.-led military coalition in Iraq.
