Lara Logan Update: At Home, In Good Spirits, Sources Say

by at . Comments

We have a few updates on journalist Lara Logan and, given her situation, all are as positive as one could hope for.

The 39-year old is at home and resting comfortably, surrounded by her husband and two children. In other news:

  • An insider familiar with the matter told The Wall Street Journal that the attack lasted 20 to 30 minutes and "was not a rape."
  • It took place a week after Logan and her crew were already arrested once in Egypt. She returned to interview Wael Ghonim, the Google executive who played a role in organizing the uprising that led to Hosni Mubarak's resignation.
  • Said Logan to Esquire of that ordeal: "We were arrested, detained, and interrogated. Blindfolded, handcuffed, taken at gunpoint, our driver beaten. It's the regime that arrested us. They arrested [our producer] just outside of his hotel, and they took him off the road at gunpoint, threw him against the wall, handcuffed him, blindfolded him. Took him into custody like that."
  • Friends say Logan plans to be back to work within a few weeks and is in good spirits.
  • Possessing an "incredibly tough constitution, she is going to be okay," a source added.

THG continues to wish Logan a full recovery and encourages readers to do the same.

The denials of NOT being raped are not credible, and do not jive at all with eyewitness accounts of a brutal rape.

I was in Morocco once. Every male in my vicinity came and touched/stroked my arms, I could only guess because I am blonde and foreign. It was incredibly irritating, as they would not dream of doing this to their own women, but felt it was their due to get to feel me. I felt like I would be rude for getting angry, it was 'sort of' innocent but nonetheless, NOT what their local women have to put up with. Boundaries should count for infidels too but they don't. Probably due to our movies, they think US women are all whores and good time girls...Lara is SO brave!!

I'M SORRY, I'M NOT TRYING TO BE CALLOUS BUT.....I'M A LITTLE CONFUSED AS TO WHAT HAPPENED TO HER. THE FIRST REPORT SAID SHE WAS SEXUALLY ASSAULTED........THEN THEY SAID IT WAS NOT RAPE...
....DOES ANYONE KNOW WHAT HAPPENED TO HER ? WAS SHE GROPED ? WAS SHE BEATEN ? WAS SHE DISROBED AND PHOTOGRAPHED ? SODOMIZED ? I THINK IF IT HAPPENED TO SOMEONE OTHER THAN A REPORTER THEY WOULD PUBLICIZE THE DETAILS A.S.A.P. BUT WHEN SOMETHING HAPPENS TO ONE OF THEM THEY DRAG OUT THE COVERAGE TO DO EXCLUSIVES ON THE AIR A WEEK OR TWO LATER. I WISH HER THE BEST AND I'M SORRY SOMETHING HAPPENED TO HER, I'M NOT TRYING TO FOLLOW AN AMBULANCE, I JUST WOULD KINDA LIKE TO KNOW WHAT MY SYMPATHY'S ARE FOR.

ABC must have a screw loose in sending this beautiful young blond haired woman into such a fanatical atmosphere. Maybe the network "made her an offer she COULDN'T refuse" who knows.
It's going to be a long road of recovery for her. It saddens my heart when I hear of ordeals such as Laras happen. I can't imagine how God feels, who sees it ALL .

I don't know who she is or how she reports, but no one deserves an attack like that. My thoughts go out to her and her family.

I felt very bad when I heard Lara was attacked. I think she is a very fine reporter and I have been concerned for her when she was in war zones. I wish her a swift recovery.

@ Mel I think your comment lacks understanding and empathy. She was surrounded by 200 screaming Egyptians who attacked her for twenty minutes. I think your insinuation that she somehow had something to do with the attack is completely unfounded and ridiculous.
