Gunmen ambushed a convoy carrying a member of the Iraqi Governing Council on Thursday as she returned to Baghdad from Najaf.
It was not immediately known if she was injured.
Salama al-Khafaji was in a three-vehicle convoy that came under fire late Thursday in the town of Yusufiyah, according to close aide Rasoul Talib.
The aide said he heard of the ambush from one of the guards traveling in the car ahead of al-Khafaji's.
The guard sped away when the shooting started, and said he did not know what happened to the others, Talib said.

I also can't see their logic because it will keep U.S. forces there longer - the only way it makes sense is if they have people on their side politically to replace the counsel members killed or it could be sheer intimidation.
