CBS Reporter Sexually Assaulted in Egypt

2/15/2011 6:15 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

CBS News reporter Lara Logan was sexually assaulted after being surrounded by a crazed mob in Tahrir Square on Friday ... moments after Hosni Mubarak officially stepped down.

Lara Logan

According to CBS, Logan and her crew were covering a story for "60 Minutes" when they were surrounded by a mob of more than 200 people and she was separated from her security team.

CBS says 39-year-old Logan "suffered a brutal and sustained sexual assault and beating before being saved by a group of women and an estimated 20 Egyptian soldiers."

CBS continues, "[Logan] reconnected with the CBS team, returned to her hotel and returned to the United States on the first flight the next morning. She is currently in the hospital recovering."

Logan and her team had been detained by Egyptian police 8 days before the sexual assault -- and Logan had reported, "We were accused of being more than journalists, very frightening suggestions were being made. Suggestions that really could be very dangerous for us."

That is really too sad. So much for Dina Lohan and her tweet about how the "Peaceful Demonstrators" showed the rest of the world how civilized they were. Not!

Why would the network send an attractive woman to such a hostile place. Even Cooper got himself beating.

Jesus! The rest of the world is not like the U.S. or Canada. It is not safe out there, and news companies should not allow people to be a part of the reporting in other countries, if they cannot absolutely guarantee that everyone will be unharmed. Sincere wishes for a quick recovery, not just physical, but especially mental recovery. Apologize for all the animals out there.

Keep your postings Mr. Itchy_Balls because I have filed a complaint with the Justice Department against you and your comments that not only I find offensive but threatening. As well, many others on TMZ and the 15 other sites that you have left your vulgar and threatening messages. You think all of this is a joke; you have left some huge foot prints Mr Motorcycle rider. Busted!

What does a fair skinned, blond woman in an area on the brink of a civil type war full of black haired, dark skinned women think is going to happen? I feel bad for her but sheshouldn't have been there.
