[ Social Media]

South African born 60 Minutes correspondent Lara Logan breaks her silence about the terrible sexual assault that she fell victim to in Egypt’s Tahrir Square following the resignation of President Hosni Mubarak.

On Feb 15th, CBS released a statement saying that Logan had been assaulted 4 days earlier while covering the celebrations of the regime change in Cairo. The hub of those celebrations was Tahrir Square, and it was filled with thousands of Egyptians that day. The CBS statement said:

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.

In her first TV interview since the event, Logan details the terrifying account of having her clothes ripped off my hundreds of men, and being beaten and “raped with their hands” repeatedly for 25 minutes. Logan confirms that a group of Egyptian women surrounded her and warded off the attackers long enough for Egyptian soldiers to finally come to her aid.
