CBS News' Lara Logan assaulted in Egypt
While reporting from Egypt for a "60 Minutes" story, CBS News correspondant Lara Logan was sexually assaulted and beaten. According to a statement issued by CBS on Tuesday, Logan was attacked on Feb. 11, the day Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak stepped down. She had been covering the rejoicing in Tahrir Square when she and her team were surrounded by a mob of more than 200 people. After being pulled away from her team, Logan "suffered a brutal and sustained sexual assault and beating" before being saved by a group of women and Egyptian soldiers. She flew back to the United States on the first flight the next morning and is now recovering in a hospital.
