BERLIN (AP) _ A Canadian reporter seriously injured in Afghanistan is recovering well at a U.S. military hospital in Germany and could return home this week, a hospital spokeswoman said Tuesday.

Kathleen Kenna, a reporter for the Toronto Star, suffered serious injuries, including a chest wound, when a hand grenade was tossed at her car March 4 as she rode toward the scene of fighting between the U.S.-led coalition and Taliban and al-Qaida forces.

She was flown to the Landstuhl Regional Medical Center March 6, along with nine Americans soldiers injured in the fighting, and arrived in critical condition, spokeswoman Marie Shaw said.

While the soldiers have since been flown back to the United States, Kenna remained for further treatment.

``She's still with us, but she is stable,'' Shaw said. ``There definitely has been a big improvement.''

Kenna, 48, remains largely sedated as her wounds heal, and her husband and sister have been visiting her daily, Shaw said.

``We expect her to be able to go home this week, but there's nothing definite,'' she said.
