CBS NEWS correspondent KIMBERLY DOZIER was critically injured and two crew members and a soldier were killed by an attack on the U.S. ARMY unit in which they were embedded in IRAQ MONDAY.
DOZIER underwent two surgeries in a U.S military hospital MONDAY, with doctors saying that they successfully removed shrapnel from DOZIER's head but the reporter sustained more serious injuries to her lower body; she was flown to LANDSTUHL REGIONAL MEDICAL CENTER in GERMANY on TUESDAY and is expected to survive. The bomb killed cameraman PAUL DOUGLAS and soundman JAMES BROLAN as well as a U.S. soldier, and wounded six other soldiers from the 4th Brigade Combat Team.
DOZIER has served as LONDON Bureau Chief and chief European correspondent for CBS RADIO NEWS as well as a TV reporter for CBS, and previously anchored "WORLD UPDATE" for BBC WORLD SERVICE and freelanced for CBS RADIO NEWS, CHRISTIAN SCIENCE MONITOR RADIO, and VOICE OF AMERICA, winning three AWRT Gracie Awards for her radio reports.
