    (CBSNews) On Friday February 11, the day Egyptian president Hosni Mubarak stepped down, CBS 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 amob of more than 200 people whipped into frenzy.
    In the crush of the mob, she was separated from her crew. She wassurrounded and suffered a brutal and sustained sexual assault andbeating before being saved by a group of women and an estimated 20Egyptian soldiers. She reconnected with the CBS team, returned to herhotel and returned to the United States on the first flight the nextmorning. She is currently in the hospital recovering.

    There will be no further comment from CBS News and Correspondent Loganand her family respectfully request privacy at this time.

    I don't feel sorry for her. In no way did she deserve to have this happen to her, but what do you expect to when you go around calling for sharia law thru democracy. If anything, you can anticipate this to be the norm until the liberals are ready to call a terrorist a terrorist.

    Those animals are scum, but I guess Allah allows that stuff right?

    Sharia Law is a scurge on civilization and should be irraticated!

    How do you know she was raped by a Muslim? How do you know what her personal politics are? What does this have to do with Sharia law (which, of course, forbids rape).
