New Details Emerge on Lara Logan Beating; Flag Poles Used in Attack

by at . Comments

Lara Logan is resting at home and sources say the CBS reporter is in good spirits, following a savage attack at the hands of Egypt protesters.

But a new report details just how brutal of a beating Logan suffered at the hands of these rioters on February 11.

Sources tell The Sunday Times of London that attackers used fists and flag poles against Logan, while wounds that remained hours later were the result of ""aggressive pinching." It all began around 1 a.m. local time, as a crowd of approximately 200 people shouted "Spy!" and "Israeli!," surrounding Logan and her co-workers in the wake of President Hosni Mubarak's resignation.

One security guard had his hand broken.

A group of women and soldiers eventually came to the aid of Logan and company. They pulled her away from the mob and back to the Four Seasons, where a hotel doctor treated her and gave her a sedative.

"Lara is getting better daily," a friend told the newspaper. "The psychological trauma is as bad as, if not worse than, the physical injuries. She might talk about it at some time in the future, but not now."
