Lara Logan, CBS News Correspondent, Sexually Assaulted in Egypt

by at . Comments

This is simply horrific:

CBS News reports that Chief Foreign Affairs Correspondent Lara Logan, covering the political uprising in Egypt, was attacked on Friday, moments after President Hosni Mubarak resigned his post.

According to the network, Logan was "separated from her crew" during the frenzy of Mubarak's resignation and "suffered a brutal and sustained sexual assault and beating before being saved by a group of women and an estimated 20 Egyptian soldiers."

Reunited with her team, Logan returned to her hotel and was flown to the United States Saturday morning. She is in the hospital recovering.

While not nearly as serious, Anderson Cooper was also attacked during his coverage of the upheaval in Egypt earlier this month. A week prior to her assault, Logan and her crew were detained today by police outside the Israeli embassy.

Our thoughts and prayer are with Lara Logan.

All ragheads should die. What a bunch of fuckups. Israel will kick your ass, with US help.


Ok, so some americaan idiots think it's Intelligent and even intellectual to write such comments. really, this is your level of education and brains, not anything else. so to save you the time and effort, I will write them all here so you can go visit another website, probably one that was made by a white woman-respecting american male where he posts nude pics of 'amateurs' and call them wh0res or cvm buckets as one here suggested:
"nuke all the muslims" "muslims are gay" "islam is a stupid religion, we should kill them all" "Egypt will be the next Iran" "democracy, my ass. look at Egypt next year when the muslims will show thier real face" Thank you!


@if a non-white foreign female reporter were in the U.S. on assignment and gangraped by "white" guys we would never hear the end of it.Look at what happened during the Duke LaCrosse debacle and that was based on a LIE.Yes,the media would paint said "white assailants" as racists,bigots,ugly americans etc.You'd then see relentless nonstop coverage of the entire ordeal in the media and like during the Duke thing-the white male image would be denigrated and painted as the privileged white american devils.This reporter wasn't only targeted because she was a woman but also because she was WHITE period.These swarthy scumbags think of western women as the ultimate wh-re and saw an opportunity to take their aggressions out on a caucasisan female.It it were not for oil and we had a leader with balls we would carpet bomb the entire contintent.


All muslim males are GAY, thats a FACT. Hope scientists will find a substantial replacement for petroleum. So that the world would never depend on those GOD forbidden muslim countries. HYPOCRITES!!!!


islam - religion of the rapists and the pedophiles. all muslims should die..


Just look at them.Their country is barbaric, they hate women and Americans. Why are we there in the first place? Lets get out of Egypt and let them implode. And STOP sending them money!!


I call for her boss who sent her there to be FIRED!!!
Way to go CBS and 60 Minutes.
You got your story but a what cost?


The raping was done by Moslem Brotherhood elements embedded in the democratic crowd. If the police, army or Mubarak's muscle had to rape they could do so in private as they already had arrested here before. This is a common occurrence for infidel women in Moslem countries. Now these rapist thugs will run Egypt. They have brotherhood trolls calling themselves egyptians blaming this on Mubarak's people. The biased Western media never tells you that Moslem Brotherhood thugs raped her as it would spoil their imagined narrative of "non islam democratic forces". I lived in Cairo for 3 years and I know how the Islamist treat their own women as chattel.


When we demand the non-western world to be westernized, sexual abuse is part of that 'westernization'. If a Muslim government is in place in Egypt, it will be a safe place for women and men. drvajra


I feel terrible about what happened to this woman but the world isn't all nice and clean. This is the risk that you take as a reporter. My issue is why the hell would they send a beautiful blonde woman to this place in the first place? Just plain stupid on CBS part. PS - This isn't a Super Bowl party that she is covering it's a revolution. Insanity is going to happen. CBS should probably think about the type of reporters that they assign to these stories.
