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.
