CBS News correspondent Kimberly Dozier, injured Monday in a Baghdad bomb attack, arrived at the U.S. military’s Landstuhl Regional Medical Center in Germany Tuesday for treatment.

Ms. Dozier received critical head and leg injuries in a blast that killed her CBS News soundman and cameraman, the network said on its Web site.

Ms. Dozier, 39, was described as being responsive and can open her eyes on command, an Army officer said Tuesday. Ms. Dozier is doing as well as can be expected and will probably remain at Landstuhl for several days, CBS reported.

Cameraman Paul Douglas, 48, and soundman James Brolan, 42, both British, died at the scene of the explosion. Their bodies were flown to Kuwait to be met by their families.

All were wearing helmets, safety goggles and flak jackets at the time of the explosion, CBS said.
