Lara Logan -- Attackers 'Raped Me With Their Hands'

4/29/2011 4:20 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

CBS reporter Lara Logan says she thought she was going to die "a torturous death" when a mob of 200 to 300 men attacked her news team in Cairo in February ... an attack in which Logan claims several men, "raped me with their hands."

Logan just spoke to "60 Minutes" about the terrible incident -- in which she explained, "Our camera battery went down, and we had to stop for a moment, and suddenly, Bahar [her cameraman] looks at me and says, 'we've got to get out of here."

Logan continued, "I thought, not only am I going to die here, but it's going to be just a torturous death that's going to go on forever and ever and ever."

"For an extended period of time, they raped me with their hands," says Logan. "My clothes were torn to pieces...what really struck me was how merciless they were. They really enjoyed my pain and suffering. It incited them to more violence."

The attack took place on February 11 -- the day Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak was driven from power. Logan says she was eventually saved by a group of women and several Egyptian soldiers.

Logan claims the "60 Minutes" interview -- which airs on Sunday -- will be her ONLY interview about the attack.

@Truth, you are a piece of shiat. I hope someone you care about gets brutally "fondled" and requires hospitalization for a long time.

Lara Logan is truly amazing, brave, courageous, and strong. A true inspiration and class act.

Well the girl learned the real live in third world country. In America she was enjoyed the protection of the law. In Egypt she was another Western bitch. By the way they treat that way all Americans. Welcome to the real world.

I am sorry, Lara, for what you went through. And to the idiots who think this wasn't rape legally, it is rape legally. There is also a classification for 'object rape'.

Lara Logan was very courageous to have admitted this publicly. Yes those who did this to her are vile, sexually repressed, psychos and the most cruel human beings in the planet. Anyone who rapes a woman should be shown no mercy, no matter what their religion happens to be. My heart goes out to Lara and this incident will always TAINT those so-called 'revolutionaries' in Egypt. I can also call this one of the most brutal and uncivilized act that these thugs have done and I wonder how many MORE have they done this to who are now traumatized or dead.

Lara Logan didn't have to go to Egypt but she took her life into her own hands when was reporting the action in Egypt. She was thinking that the 1st Amendment applies where ever she goes. Well it dosen't. She was trying to get the big "Scoop" and nearly got killed. I bet she won't do that anymore. So she doesn't have anyone to blaame but her self, she knew she was in a troubled country but she didn't expect that she would mauled. She figured she is a "reporter" and it hands off. Well the Egyptians didn't see it that way. I don't feel sorry for Lara Logan she played with fire and got burned. Hey Lara next time you go on a fact finding mission to a foreign country tell CBS to send some body guards with you.

@Truth

You are worse then her attackers. If you want to know what REALLY happened to this poor women, you need to read this story :

http://www.uncoverage.net/2011/02/lara-logans-rape-in-egypt-square-much-worse-than-reported/

"THREE HOURS she was stripped in front of hundreds of people who WATCHED and jeered and cheered."

"another purported video that was described by a controversial YouTube video claims that a bearded man ripped the top off the reporter and began slapping her face and breasts. He then pinned her to the ground, and by this time she stopped resisting, apparently accepting the fact that she was overpowered. The bearded man then removed her pants and masturbated in front of her before raping her. He also reportedly clawed at her breasts with his hands. "


This was not some minor "fondling", she was vaginally and anally raped by tens, maybe even hundreds of men, all while a huge mob "crowd shouted “Jew, Jew!”, and “American bitch!”. Lara Logan is not Jewish or American, she’s a South African native."

Think about if this was your mother, wife, sister, daughter. Other reports have come to light that many other women were also raped by the mob.

The US should leave the middle east alone, and let it choose it's own fate.

OooooNooo!    

LIES! ALL LIES!
The Muslim people are governed by a gentile and kind religion that does not permit gang rape of women. Any Muslim who raped her with his hand would have his hand cut off. It must be a dis-information plot by the Jews, just like the phony holocaust! At least that what the nice man said on the Arab TV.

You speak truth... When living in Europe I can't tell you the number of American women who knowingly went against the cultural- attitudes towards women only to molested when they'd go out at night unescorted, refuse to wear clothing deemed appropriate, etc. If you don't like another country's mindset an attitudes - DON'T GO.

I hope every single sorry-ass piece of man **** who touched this woman has their di*k cut off and shoved down their own throat. Can anyone even imagine what it must be like to be a woman in these pitiful low-life countries where men have absolutely NO respect for females. Makes you want to load your M16 and fire on the crowd until no one is left standing. No news agency should send a woman into these types of situations. They have about as much sense as the jerk-offs in the crowd who assulted her. Hold your head up and stay strong Lara, God will have his revenge on your attackers.
