How important does a person have to be before they are considered assassinated instead of just...murdered?
good question and one i've often wondered about myself.
Eminent top political leaders are 'assassinated' while killing of the rest of the people is called 'murder'. Often it is their political status and not their importance as an individual that matters when they are assassinated.
