    <blockquote>KABUL — A roadside bombing has wounded two Associated Press journalists embedded with the U.S. military in southern Afghanistan.

    Photographer Emilio Morenatti and AP Television News videographer Andi Jatmiko were traveling with the military when their vehicle was struck by the bomb Tuesday.

    Both were immediately taken to a military hospital in Kandahar. Jatmiko suffered leg injuries and two broken ribs. Morenatti, badly wounded in the leg, underwent an operation that resulted in the loss of his foot.

    Morenatti, 40, a Spaniard, is an award-winning photographer based in Islamabad who has worked for the AP in Afghanistan, Israel and the Palestinian territories. He was named Newspaper Photographer of the Year in 2009 by Pictures of the Year International.

    Jatmiko, 44, of Indonesia, has reported for the AP from throughout Asia for more than 10 years.</blockquote>http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2009/08/12/ap-journalists-emilio-mor_n_257280.html
