More Shredded Journalists in Iraq

CBS News: Deadly Attack On CBS News Crew, Two Team Members Killed, Correspondent Seriously Injured By Roadside Bomb In Baghdad

CBS News Crew Attacked

(CBS/AP) Two members of a CBS News team, veteran cameraman Paul Douglas, 48, and soundman James Brolan, 42, were killed and correspondent Kimberly Dozier, 39, was seriously injured Monday when the Baghdad military unit in which they were embedded was attacked.

They were reporting on patrol with the 4th Brigade Combat Team, 4th Infantry Division, when their convoy was struck by a roadside bomb…


The U.S. military said a U.S. soldier and an Iraqi contractor also were killed in the attack on their convoy.

I wonder if they got tricked: According to CBS News,

Following what the U.S. military is calling a “curious incident” in the Karada neighborhood of Baghdad, Dozier, Douglas and Brolan got out of their armored vehicle. That’s when a nearby car packed with explosives detonated. Douglas and Brolan died at the scene.

Dozier sustained serious injuries and was flown to a U.S. military hopsital inside Baghada’s Green Zone, where she underwent surgery. She is in critical condition, but doctors are cautiously optimistic about her prognosis.
