The deputy prime minister of Iraq was discharged from a hospital in Jordan Tuesday where he was treated after last month's attempt on his life by a group linked to al-Qaida, the Iraqi ambassador said. Ten days ago, a suicide bomber detonated himself in a small mosque attached to Salam al-Zubaie's home in Baghdad, killing nine people and seriously wounding the deputy prime minister, who is the most senior Sunni official in Iraq's Shiite-led government. Al-Zubaie is in "good health, completely recovered, but he will stay in Amman for a few more days," Ambassador Saad al-Hayyani told The Associated Press. Al-Zubaie was treated in a Baghdad hospital and was flown to Amman last Wednesday, where he was admitted to the King Hussein Medical City, a military hospital in the suburbs of the Jordanian capital.
