An Associated Press photographer injured by a bomb in Afghanistan has arrived at a Baltimore rehabilitation center.

Emilio Morenatti was wounded two weeks ago when his vehicle ran over a bomb in southern Afghanistan. His left foot was amputated at the University of Maryland Medical Center Shock Trauma Center in Baltimore. Morenatti will receive further treatment at Kernan Orthopaedics and Rehabilitation Hospital.

Two U-S soldiers and an AP Television News videographer from Indonesia were also wounded in the attack.
