(Baghdad, Iraq-AP) -- N-B-C says it's not going to let a bomb explosion in Baghdad keep it from covering the situation in Iraq.
A network spokeswoman says it remains dedicated to covering the story while doing everything possible to ensure the safety and security of employees.
The blast today at a hotel where N-B-C has its offices killed a Somali guard in his sleep. An N-B-C soundman suffered a deep cut from flying glass.
Twelve of the network's staffers were in the building at the time of the explosion, but no others were hurt.
Iraqi police say the bomb was placed in a hut that housed the hotel generator.
A network correspondent says there were no signs on the building indicating N-B-C had quarters there.
The U-S commander in Iraq says it's too early to tell whether the attack was targeting the media.
