From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Salam al-Zaubai is an Iraqi politician who was the Deputy Prime Minister of Iraq from 2006 to 2007. He was elected to the Iraqi National Assembly in December 2005 as part of the Sunni Arab-led Iraqi Accord Front list.

He is from a well known tribe, the Zoba'a, and heads the Agriculture Engineers Union.[1]

On March 23, 2007, Zaubai was wounded in an attack involving a suicide bombing and car bombing at a mosque near his home in Baghdad, and he was taken to a U.S. military hospital in the Green Zone for surgery.[2] His adviser was reportedly killed in the attack, along with a number of his guards.[3][4] A brother and cousin of Zaubai, as well as the mosque's imam, were also said to have been killed.[5] The bomber attacked al-Zubaie a day after an al-Qaida umbrella group, the Islamic State of Iraq called him a stooge “to the crusader occupiers.” Hours after the assassination attempt the group claimed responsibility for the bombing.[6] On March 28, he was moved to Amman, Jordan for treatment at the King Hussein Medical Center, and he was released from the hospital on April 3.[7]
