Wounded CBS reporter flown to Germany

THE US military says a CBS Radio News correspondent wounded in eastern Afghanistan has been flown to Germany for additional medical treatment.

Cami McCormick was wounded Friday when the Army vehicle she was in struck a roadside bomb in Logar province.

CBS and NATO have not revealed the extent of her injuries.

McCormick, 47, was first treated at a field hospital and then at Bagram Air Field in Afghanistan. U.S. military spokeswoman Sgt. Susan Wilt says she flew to Landstuhl, Germany, on a military flight early today.

McCormick is an award-winning New York-based correspondent who has worked for CBS since 1998.

The Afghan Taliban's increasing use of roadside bombs has raised the risk to Western troops and journalists traveling with them.
