TV woman 'stable' after Iraq hit

CBS TV journalist Kimberly Dozier, who was seriously injured in a bomb attack in Iraq, is said to be in a "stable" condition at a hospital in Germany.

Ms Dozier, who holds dual US-British nationality, was sent to a US military hospital there, a day after the attack which killed two British colleagues.

Doctors in Baghdad had removed shrapnel from her head but she has more serious injuries to her lower body, CBS said.

Ms Dozier is expected to stay at the medical centre for the next few days.

Ms Dozier, who previously worked for BBC World Service radio, is in the intensive care unit at the Landstuhl Regional Medical Centre in southern Germany.

A military spokesman told a news conference that Ms Dozier was "doing as well as could be expected".

She was responsive during her flight over, moving her toes and opening her eyes when prompted, Col W Bryan Gamble said.

"It's really hard right now to ascertain how much of a recovery period she will need and what the extent of her rehabilitation will be," he said.

Cameraman Paul Douglas, 48, and soundman James Brolan, 42, died when a car bomb hit the 4th Infantry Division US military unit they were accompanying in the Iraqi capital.

All three were wearing protective gear at the time, said US TV network CBS.

A US army officer and an Iraqi interpreter died in the same attack.
