An Associated Press photographer and a videographer have been injured in a roadside bombing in Afghanistan, the news agency has reported.

Photographer Emilio Morenatti, from Spain, and Andi Jatmiko, an Indonesian videographer who works for AP Television News, were embedded with the US military in southern Afghanistan when they were wounded yesterday.

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

The agency’s president Tom Curley paid tribute to the ‘bravery and commitment’ of the pair, in one of the most dangerous parts of the world.
