The convoy carrying Ibrahim was traveling to a cultural festival at Baghdad’s National Theater when one of its vehicles hit an improvised explosive device. Four of her bodyguards were injured in the attack.

The first lady is the daughter of Ibrahim Ahmed, one of the founders of the Kurdish Democratic Party, and married Talabani in 1970. The First Lady also owns a media group and is a committed children’s rights activist.
