Wounded ABC Journalists Arrive In Germany

ABC News anchor Bob Woodruff, the 44-year-old co-anchor of "World News Tonight," and cameraman Doug Vogt, 46, arrived in Germany on this morning to receive treatment for wounds they suffered Sunday near Taji, Iraq, about 20 miles north of Baghdad.

According to ABC, Both journalists were listed in serious but stable condition Sunday after both sustained head injuries. Woodruff also suffered shrapnel injuries to his body, and Vogt has a broken shoulder.

The two men had been embedded with the U.S. Army's 4th Infantry Division. At the time of the blast, they were traveling with U.S. and Iraqi security forces in the lead of an eight-vehicle convoy of U.S. armored Humvees.

The men, wearing helmets and body armor, were standing, videotaping a log of their trip, in the rear hatch of the vehicle when the bomb was detonated, apparently by a hard-wire connection. The blast was followed by small-arms fire from three directions.

Last month, Woodruff and Elizabeth Vargas were named to replace the late Peter Jennings as "World News Tonight" co-anchors.
