A CBS spokeswoman says correspondent Kimberly Dozier has undergone two surgeries since being injured in a car bombing yesterday in Iraq.

Doctors have removed shrapnel from her head, but they say the most series injuries are to her lower body. Dozier is being treated in Germany.

The blast in Baghdad killed British cameraman Paul Douglas and freelance soundman James Brolan.

Military officials say Dozier will be treated at the Landstuhl Regional Medical Center, which is the US military's largest overseas hospital.

CBS says all three journalists were riding in an armored humvee and are believed to have been wearing protective gear.

The US ambassador to Iraq says he's "shocked and saddened" by the news.

CBS News President Sean McManus says "our deepest sympathy" goes to the families of Douglas and Brolan.
