A terrible thing in Cairo

Lara Logan, chief foreign correspondent for CBS News and 60 Minutes, suffered "a brutal and sustained sexual assault and beating" while covering the celebration in Tahrir Square after Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak announced he was stepping down as president. Logan, CBS reports, was finally "saved by a group of women and an estimated 20 Egyptian soldiers," taken back to her hotel, and then flown to the United States on the first flight out. She is recovering in a hospital. CBS News said it will issue no further comments on the incident at this time.

The photo was reportedly taken just moments before Logan was separated from her crew and attacked.
