This situation going on in Egypt is getting REALLY crazy! Moments after Hosni Mubarak officially stepped down from his position of power, CBS News says one of their reporters Lara Logan was sexually assaulted and beaten after she was separated from her security team and surrounded by a huge mob in Tahrir Square.
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.”
Between Anderson Cooper from CNN getting attacked and this woman from CBS getting sexually assaulted … we don’t know what the hell is going on over there! All we know is that our nosy American a$$es need to pack up and get the hell out of Egypt QUICKLY before the next story we report is about someone getting killed or something.
