Egypt: An attack on CBS correspondent Lara Logan
Horrific news from the CBS camp was released Tuesday: Foreign correspondent Lara Logan was beaten and sexually assaulted Friday while covering the celebration of Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak's downfall in Cairo's Tahrir Square for "60 Minutes."
UPDATE: Mona Eltahawy, a columnist and public speaker on Arab and Muslim issues, has turned her Twitter account into a forum for women to share their perspective on Logan's assault. It offers a variety of sentiments, including this from @RebeccaCl. "I was sexually assaulted in Egypt in 2000, but don't talk about it in the US because of the racist response."
