More death in northern Iraq, where guerrillas killed an American soldier and wounded another in a roadside bomb blast. That takes the number of US soldiers killed in action in Iraq since last year's invasion to *655.* But as Elaine Cobbe reports - insurgents are ratcheting up their focus on Iraqi officials.

((The suicide bomber waited patiently for the minister just five hundred yards from his home. As the convoy pulled up alongside, he set off the explosives. But the bomber's timing was off - the blast hit only the cars at the tail end of the convoy. The minister was unhurt - but his nephew was among those killed. A group linked to Jordanian militant Abu Musab al Zarqawi has claimed responsibility. BRIDGE: Elaine Cobbe :10 The justice minister had a lucky escape - but he's just the latest in an all-too-long line of iraqi officials being targeted by insurgents. This wasn't the only deadly attack today. TRACK: Another car bomb twenty miles south of Baghdad targeted the local headquarters of the Iraqi National Guard. A guardsman was killed and several people lining up to join the force were wounded. Attacks continue on Iraq's economic life too. But the Iraqi National Guard got lucky - and caught oil smugglers in Basra in the south.

Outsourcing may be more common than ever, but one Henry County company is bringing more jobs TO the United States. Globaltex, a textile manufacturer is closing its operations in Mexico and moving them to Henry County. The company, which opened the Henry County plant earlier this year in the old V-F Imagewear facility, has operated a factory in Mexico since 1994. Officials say the move will be more profitable because it takes at least five weeks to fill orders from their Mexican plant, compared to just three weeks from the Henry County plant. The move is expected to add more than 150 jobs.

[SUPER=03-Kompong Chnang, Cambodia]

Thousands have flocked to this small province of Cambodia to be licked by this so-called healing bull. Hundreds come every day from all across the nation to be cured of their various aliments. The owner says he discovered the bull's healing powers after his wife was cured of her five year ailment, only after being doused with the cow saliva. Since that day Cambodians have been traveling from near and far to receive their tongue lashings. (------------)
