CBS News said in a statement posted on its Web site that a crew of three embedded with the United States army’s 4th Infantry Division patrolling in Baghdad came under attack Monday. Cameraman, Paul Douglas and soundman, James Brolan were killed by a car bomb while correspondent Kimberly Dozier was critically injured. The bomb also killed an Iraqi contractor and an American soldier. Six soldiers were injured.
By some reckonings, the deaths firmly secured the Iraq war as the deadliest conflict for reporters in modern times.
