Lara Logan assaulted in Egypt

CBS correspondent suffered "sexual assault and beating"

Lara Logan, a correspondent for CBS news, was covering the celebration in Egypt the day Hosni Mubarak resigned. In the midst of their coverage of the events in Tahrir Square, she and her team were surrounded by a mob of 200 people. Logan was separated from her crew and “suffered a brutal and sustained sexual assault and beating” before a group of Egyptian women and soldiers came to her rescue. She returned to the United States where she is in the hospital recovering. Logan and CBS are refusing further comment at this time.
