American Journalist Suffers 'Brutal Sexual Assault' While Covering Celebration In Egypt!!



CBS News says correspondent Lara Logan "suffered a brutal and sustained sexual assault" while covering the resignation of Egyptian president Hosni Mubarak

CBS Statement:

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.


Logan had previously been detained by Egyptian authorities while attempting to enter Egypt.

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

I agree Catherine i keep saying that myself if America aint got they nose in someones country they bringing everybody here from different countries Jepordizing all who are born and raised here. Thats the reason why they get to target america so much because these people come from all over sizing up America for a terrorist attack I was looking at the news when this all began when they were rioting in the streets wilding out and this one woman reporter was in a crowd of angry egypitans trying to get some information from them and the main one was ready to f*** her ass up he warning her get the f*** away from here go go we hate america thats what he kept saying and he was getting angrier and angrier she was pressing her dumb luck.

I don't know why they are always sticking their nose in everybody business.  They should let the people fight their own battles because they never seem to appreciate the help and innocent lives are lost!

they go to the middle east to protect Israel and the oil. It's all about dollars and cents.

The CIA probably paid them to do it, so like JamRock said they have a reason to go in there and protect the 'oil', or isreal or whatever excuse they make to go in with guns blazin
