Journalists injured in Iraq flown to German military hospital

U.S. news anchor Bob Woodruff and cameraman Doug Vogt, injured in a roadside bombing in Iraq, were flown Monday to a U.S. military hospital in Germany. Marie Shaw, a spokeswoman for the Landstuhl Regional Medical Center, said the two had arrived but declined to provide information about their condition, saying family members were not yet on the scene.

Woodruff and Vogt, who work for the ABC network, were flown to the adjacent air base at Ramstein and moved by ambulance to the hospital, Shaw said. The facility, atop a wooded hill in the town of Landstuhl in western Germany, has treated thousands of U.S. soldiers wounded in Iraq and Afghanistan.

Woodruff and Vogt were wounded when the Iraqi Army vehicle they were in was hit by a roadside bomb near Taji north of Baghdad. Both suffered head injuries and Woodruff had broken bones, reports the AP. I.L.
