ABC News anchor Bob Woodruff and a cameraman were seriously wounded Sunday in an explosion while reporting from Iraq, the network said Sunday.
Woodruff and cameraman Doug Vogt were hit by an improvised explosive device near Taji, Iraq, and were in serious condition at a US military hospital, ABC News President David Westin said.
The two were embedded with the 4th Infantry Division and traveling with an Iraqi Army unit.
The US military headquarters in Baghdad confirmed that the ABC News team was involved in an attack but declined to provide further details to The Associated Press.
An official military statement was expected to be issued later Sunday.
