Being a war correspondent is fraught with danger as sadly 60 minutes reporter Lara Logan found out during the Egyptian celebrations in Tahrir Square last week. It is reported that at some stage the reporter and her team were surrounded by a frenzied mob of about 200 Egyptians. In the ensuing crush she was separated from her crew then assaulted before suffering a “brutal and sustained sexual assault” (in other words, gang raped). She was eventually rescued by a group of women and 20 Egyptian soldiers.Logan flew back to US the following day where she is still currently recovering in hospital.
