    CBS News' Lara Logan Assaulted During Egypt Protests

    (CBSNews) 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.

    Blonde female, infidel... Islamic country in a riotous state...

    I'm glad they got her out of there, but she should NEVER HAVE BEEN THERE. Just ASKING for trouble.
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    Exactly right Reporters know they can easily find themselves in harms way and they should use better judgment.

    I'm not sure I would have gone there, no matter what the boss said.

    No story is worth your life.

    Looks like several freedom loving Egyptians were more interested in some white girl pussy.

    CBS Reporter Sexually Assaulted in Tahrir Square

    This seriously broke my heart. We were watching live as demonstrators broke between the pretty blonde correspondent and the rest of her production team. I told my husband I didn't like the way the men were looking at her. Now I see this:

    CBS News' Logan Recovering after 'Brutal' Attack | CNSnews.com

    ...Separated from her crew in the crush of the violent pack, she suffered what CBS called "a brutal and sustained sexual assault and beating." She was saved by a group of women and an estimated 20 Egyptian soldiers, the network said...
    Absolutely horrible. It breaks my heat that this courageous woman was abused by the very people she was supporting, and trying to interview. I almost feel complicit in this vile attack, because I was so thrilled that the Egyptian people had managed to garner their freedom. I was watching when that same crowd pushed the camera/production team away from from the female correspondent.

    I am horrified and stunned. I had been rooting for the Egyptian protesters to push Mubarak's corrupt regime out of office... and yet they do this to an innocent journalist trying to project their demands to the world???

    I'm really, really furious, and sick at the depravity.

    I hope she is tough enough to get past this enough to go back to work, but I also hope she has learned that her life is worth more than any story.

    I am sorry this happened to her but she should have known the risks were enormous.

    There were thousand of people there, you have to seperate the few who attacked her from the thousands others who didn't, and then the few who helped her too.

    I was surprised to read there were 140 attacks on journalists. But the foreign journalists are often proud of the fact that they are brave enough to go into these places to report these events. I think the one guy who was killed is to be pitied too.

    Re: CBS Reporter Sexually Assaulted in Tahrir Square

    Sadly the dispicable act of a few people...and I garauntee you this isn't the only such act of ill repute by some of the protestors...can't be looked at as a symptom or a representation of the whole. Condemn those people for their actions, but don't ignore that it was egyptian protesters as well who helped the woman after that. These pieces of trash give their movement a black eye, but they are but a small part.

    I wish some people would take a similar "**** happens" mentality when a minority of idiots of a larger momvent do something stupid ALL the time rather than only when its not politically advantageous to assume its not representitive of the whole...but that'd probably be asking too much.

    The only people complicite with their actions are themselves, and I hope they find a fitting bit of karma dropping upon them for their dispicable act.

    What a horrible story, and you know the scum who did this to her won't be held accountable at all. It'll be interesting to see if people are willing to condemn this or will just duck it instead.
