CBS.News.com and the Associated Press reported that wounded CBS News correspondent Kimberly Dozier has arrived in Germany for treatment at a U.S. military hospital. Her colleagues cameraman Paul Douglas, and sound man James Brolan were killed in a bombing Monday when the three were working on a story about U.S. troops in Iraq on Memorial Day.
CBS News reported that Dozier is in critical but stable condition.
"All three showed tremendous courage on this assignment and many others," said Barbara Cochran, the president of RTNDA, in a statement. "They undertook these dangerous assignments to bring the story of the war in Iraq to the public. RTNDA members mourn the loss of two dedicated professionals, Paul Douglas and James Brolan, and hope for the speedy recovery of Kimberly Dozier."
Dozens of journalists have been injured, killed or kidnapped in Iraq since the war began in 2003, according to the RTNDA. Seventy-one have died as a result of hostile actions, according to the Committee to Protect Journalists.
