27.05.2004 BAGHDAD, Iraq - 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.

Al-Khafaji is one of three women on the Governing Council. She replaced another Shiite female member, Aquila al-Hashimi, who was killed in September during an ambush near her Baghdad home.

Al-Khafaji was among several Shiite council members who traveled to Najaf on Thursday to help negotiate a deal to stop the fighting in the holy city between U.S. soldiers and Shiite militiamen loyal to radical cleric Muqtada al-Sadr.
