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."

Learn what? That Mid-East people aren't people?

You think she would have learned that the people of the Mid-East are all animals half a step from living in their own excrement?

Maybe she knew how disgusting they were and sacrificed herself so light could be shed on how vile the people of the Mid-East are.

Take a walk down any city in the USA and you'll see people from all nations, but when you go to the Mid-East all you see are people from the Mid-East. Racists.

It really sucks and by no means do I condone what happened, but you sometimes have to also question the thinking process of North American journalists that think they can just walk into a mob scene to do their reporting and never face any bad consequences. The crowds are in a frenzy and rioting in some cases and these reporters waltz in there for shock value and think they are somehow protected from the situation.
I feel terrible for her, but maybe next time she might consider reporting from a safer distance from the anarchy.

Pisses you off to see a Marine standing on your corner carrying an M-16 doesn't it? Deal with it.

Well Mike where in Europe are these marines? How many Americans wish they had a marine standing on their corner to protect them from the gangs and criminals that litter the US? The way the US is going it may not be long before some little yellow dude is standing on your corner with an ak-47.

More blaming the victim. This is outrageous.

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.

Thanks for reminding everyone how MID EAST people will LIE right to your face.

Mid East people lie to anyone that isn't a muslim because they consider them to be inhuman. A Mid East person will lie to your face because they consider you to be the devil, an animal.

Maybe I'm wrong. *smile*

The misogynist posts here are not surprising. There are many George Sodini-type losers in the world who have been rejected by women and then developed an extreme hatred of them, even wishing that they be raped or killed. They justify their hatred in a number of ways, including blaming the victim for the harm she suffered.

Nice try misogynists, but we see right through your pathetic existence.
