CBS / AP:

Two members of a CBS News team, veteran cameraman Paul Douglas, 48, and soundman James Brolan, 42, were killed and correspondent Kimberly Dozier, 39, was seriously injured Monday when the U.S. Army unit in which they were embedded was attacked.

They were on a patrol with the 4th Brigade Combat Team, 4th Infantry Division, when their convoy was attacked. They were reporting a “routine” story, covering American troops for Memorial Day. The trio was only planning to be out for a few hours, in order to get back to the CBS Baghdad bureau in time to edit their piece

Following what the U.S. military is calling a “curious incident” in the Karada neighborhood of Baghdad, Dozier, Douglas and Brolan got out of their armored vehicle. That’s when a nearby car packed with explosives detonated. Douglas and Brolan died at the scene.
