Iraq's interim Public Works Minister Nisreen Mustafa al-Burwari escaped an assasination attempt after a group of armed men opened fire on her convoy in Mosul killing at least 2 of her bodyguards.

She is the only woman in the cabinet, which was chosen by the US-appointed Governing Council.

Her ministry is one of four due to revert to Iraqi control by 1 April.

A spokeswoman for US-led forces in Baghdad, Kristi Clemens, told the Associated Press news agency that Ms Burwari was returning to Mosul from a meeting in the city of Dohuk when her convoy was attacked.

Iraqi police said the attack happened at around 1100 local time (0800 GMT) in al-Karama neighbourhood of Mosul.
