CBS News’ Lara Logan Assaulted in Egypt

Separated from her crew and attacked in Tahrir Square on the day Mubarak stepped down

This is an awful story; in Tahrir Square on the day Mubarak stepped down, CBS News reporter Lara Logan was separated from her crew, sexually assaulted, and beaten in a sustained attack that only ended when Egyptian soldiers stormed the mob. Here’s the CBS News statement.

(CBSNews) On Friday February 11, the day Egyptian president Hosni Mubarak stepped down, CBS correspondent Lara Logan was covering the jubilation in Tahrir Square for a 60 MINUTES story when she and her team and their security were surrounded by a dangerous element amidst the celebration. It was a mob of more than 200 people whipped into frenzy.

In the crush of the mob, she was separated from her crew. She was surrounded and suffered a brutal and sustained sexual assault and beating before being saved by a group of women and an estimated 20 Egyptian soldiers. She reconnected with the CBS team, returned to her hotel and returned to the United States on the first flight the next morning. She is currently in the hospital recovering.

There will be no further comment from CBS News and Correspondent Logan and her family respectfully request privacy at this time.
