Bob Woodruff and Doug Vogt are safely at a military hospital in Germany after an insurgent attack in Iraq yesterday left them both seriously wounded. They are in serious but stable condition.
“Bob and Doug were in Iraq doing what reporters do, trying to find out what’s happening there up-close and first-hand. All of us are mindful of the risks and the dangers,” his co-anchor Elizabeth Vargas said yesterday.
The attack on the newly named co-anchor of “World News Tonight” is only the latest blow to hit a network that last year saw its longtime anchor Peter Jennings felled by lung cancer and its “Nightline” host Ted Koppel depart under less-than-happy circumstances.
