Reporting for 60 Minutes in Tahrir Square on the day Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak stepped down, CBS reporter Lara Logan was reportedly sexually assaulted.
CBS reports that on Friday, Feb. 11, Lara and her team and security were surrounded by a mob of more than 200 people.
Lara was separated from her crew and surrounded, according to CBS.
“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.”
Lara was then reunited with her CBS team and returned on the first flight back to the United States the next morning.
“She is currently in the hospital recovering,” CBS wrote, adding, “There will be no further comment from CBS News.”
