NPR's Madeleine Brand talks to Edward Wong of The New York Times about an assassination threat aimed at the interim prime minister for Iraq, Iyad Allawi. The threat came in a taped message on a radical Islamic Web site one day after the beheading of a South Korean translator by radical Islamic militants, who demanded South Korea abandon its plan to add troops to the U.S.-led military coalition.
