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."

Yes, because people in the United States are so civilized. Americans don't have the highest crime rate, rapes, murders, incest never happen here right? Ignorant much blaming Egypt? Look on your home turf first before being an ignorant, racist, redneck by using the race card to cast blame. She's not so morally sound herself by the way. Just sayin.

Sorry, I don't believe it. This was the woman that had 2 affairs while reporting in Iraq. And one of those men was also married and he's the one that got her knocked-up while in Iraq! I think she's just a slut looking for a gang bang, but she just doesn't want people to know it.

Another shining moment for the so-called religion of peace. Mubarek at least had the brains to lock up those Muslim Brotherhood savages. Now that he's gone the whole country will be subject to these stone-age cretins. Any sane person will wish they had their dictator back.

You are so unbelievably ignorant, you must have a rusty nail for brains. To make an assumtion that the person you were slamming lives in the desert is based on nothing. What does being civilized and living in the desert have to do with one another? How's it a diss? Do people in the U.S. not live in the desert? Are you slamming the people who live in Arizona calling them uncivilized? Do you live in Los Angeles, CA or New York? If not...well then are you uncivilized? Because surely those are big, famous cities that have a high cost of living with lots going on. Usually you aren't doing bad for yourself if you can make it in L.A. So...if you aren't from L.A.....should we think lesser of you? Tables can be turned. You are an uneducated fool.

Any point did you make?...What has "Marine" got to do with my comment? And since when did Marines stand on the corner of Norway? Never mind...You just proved how an idiot you are.

You live in the desert. You're a fûcking idiot. Go back to your ground sand and feces dinner. 10,000 years of civilazation and you idiots can't figure out how to get out of the fûcking desert. Your entire society are morons.

WTF are you babbling about?! The fact that you think my post indicates that I live in the Middle East makes you the complete idiot!!! Maybe you should work on your own issues before you denigrate hundreds of millions of people!
