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.
