Bob Woodruff of ABC News is headed to Havana this weekend for his first overseas reporting trip since being severely injured by a roadside bomb in Iraq last year.
His coverage of May Day (May 1) commemorations in Cuba will begin on “World News” on Sunday and continue during the week. He’ll undoubtedly take a look at the state of Cuba with leader Fidel Castro aging and ailing.
It’s his first foreign assignment since he and cameraman Doug Vogt were injured in Iraq in 2006. Vogt and sound technician Magnus Macedo, who was with them in Iraq, will join Woodruff.
