The Global Grind just reported that Lara Logan was viciously sexually assaulted this week. CBS News has just issued a statement saying that their foreign correspondent reporter, Lara Logan was subjected to a ‘brutal and sustained beating and sexual assault’ in Egypt while covering the downfall of Mubarak.
The word is she was separated from her camera crew and set upon by a group of up to 200 people. She was rescued by a group of women and Egyptian soldiers and is currently recuperating in a hospital.
Understandably, neither her nor the network are offering further comment. Our thoughts go out to her, her family and young son, as well as the people of Egypt. Hopefully she and everyone else living in the region is okay.
