Iraq First Lady survives bomb

Iraq‘s First Lady has escaped unhurt after a bomb attack on her motorcade in Baghdad, the office of President Jalal Talabani has said.

His wife, Hiro Ibrahim Ahmed, was travelling to a cultural festival at the National Theatre at the time. Four of her bodyguards were injured in the attack, the office said. Earlier, the US military said that a roadside bomb in Iraq’s mainly Sunni western province of Anbar had killed four US marines.

The attack on the First Lady’s motorcade occurred in the capital’s Karrada district but it is unclear whether she was specifically targeted. The president’s office said: “One of the vehicles of Ms Hiro Ibrahim’s convoy hit an improvised explosive device in the road this morning. She was heading to the National Theatre.”

She was probably watching a western play and the Shia madmen or Iran’s ayatollahs didn’t like it!
