HotAirPundit has the statement from CBS News:

On Friday, Feb. 11, the day Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak stepped down, CBS chief foreign correspondent Lara Logan was covering the jubilation in Tahrir Square for a “60 Minutes” story when she and her team and their security were surrounded by a dangerous element amidst the celebration. It was a mob of more than 200 people whipped into frenzy.

In the crush of the mob, she was separated from her crew. She was surrounded and suffered a brutal and sustained sexual assault and beating before being saved by a group of women and an estimated 20 Egyptian soldiers. She 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.

According to the NY Post, “Lara Logan was repeatedly sexually assaulted by thugs yelling, “Jew! Jew!” as she covered the chaotic fall of Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak in Cairo’s main square Friday… The TV crew with Logan, who is also the network’s chief foreign correspondent, had its cameras rolling moments before she was dragged off — and caught her on tape looking tense and trying to head away from a crowd of men behind her in Tahrir Square…she was separated from her colleagues and attacked for between 20 to 30 minutes, The Wall Street Journal said…Her injuries were described to The Post as “serious.””

The Post also reports “the day before, Logan had told Esquire.com that Egyptian soldiers hassling her and her crew had accused them of “being Israeli spies.” Logan is not Jewish.”

Nir Rosen called Logan a “war-monger” and lamented that she’d likely become a “martyr” for being sexually assaulted

    I heard about this , I also heard about what a great sense of humor her liberal friends have and of all the sympathy they had for her horrible ordeal . Probably because they know that brutalization of women is normal for their Muslim friends and what a great sense of humor they have too.

    I am insanely furious about Lara Logan being gang raped and then brutally beaten by about 200 Egyptian men while she was assigned by CBS News to cover the celebration and jubilation of the Egyptian people reaching a major and very positive advancement in their governmental process. I’m angry at CBS for putting someone so beautiful in a situation like that, not thinking through what could have happened to her, even if she did have a “security” detail. But by far my greatest anger goes to that crowd of 200 Egyptian men who did that to her; they are worse than animals and if it can be determined exactly which ones did that to her, which ones assisted, and even those who stood back and did absolutely nothing to help her or try and talk the other men out of it…this son of a bitch Nir Rosen, one of Lara’s fellow journalists, who, even AFTER she was so brutally raped and beaten said that she was a “war monger,” and stated he thought she would likely become a martyr for being sexually assaulted. This bastard, and also that crowd of men who did this to Lara are perfect examples of what Middle Eastern men are like, how they think, how they act, what they think of women and of the United States…These men are truly animals; they do not care about human life, women, and have absolutely no integrity, no honor, no pride, no concern for how this makes their country look in the eyes of the world…all they cared about was seeing what it would be like to have animalistic sex with a beautiful American girl, an act more about demeaning and brutalizing her than about sex, and then to beat her on top of that…if Egypt were blown off the map with nuclear weapons I could not care less. Previous to this happening to Lara, I was truly ecstatic at what had just happened for the people of Egypt, but now I see what they are really like. What they did should be broadcast loud and long on news media all over the world for people to see what Egyptians are like. If they find out who did this they should have to pay Lara money the rest of their lives. I started to ask what those men would think and feel if something like that had happened to their own sisters, daughters and mothers, but knowing how they feel and think about women, I won’t ask. May these low life pigs burn in hell. I adore Lara and have deep respect for her as a reporter and for what she has accomplished, and my heart, my thoughts and my prayers are with her. ~Dean in Abilene

    What the h–l does where she is from have to do with anything ? This woman was horribly violated by any standards , yet this is what can always be expected when dealing with muslim heathens . I can not believe that people of a civilized world would even consider , under any circumstances , buying into sharia law , as so many of our politically correct elites seem so anxious to do .
