WASHINGTON (AP) - U.S. Ambassador to Iraq Christopher Hill was among a group of American personnel who were uninjured when an explosive device detonated near their convoy in southern Iraq.

State Department spokeswoman Joanne Moore said the bomb exploded as the convoy was traveling Sunday through Dhi Qar province.

No one in the convoy was hurt, Moore said. She added that an investigation into the incident is under way.
