9. It's a pretty good question, actually.

I seem to recall reading or hearing somewhere that there's a sort of unspoken international agreement not to assassinate heads of state, at least in peacetime. I also seem to recall Churchill putting the kibosh on a plan to assassinate Hitler during WWII, so it seems the agreement holds even in wartime, to an extent.

I have no source to back this up, mind you. It's just something I think I remember. I could be way wrong.
