CBS News reporter Lara Logan endured ‘brutal assault’ in Egypt

CBS News war correspondent Lara Logan endured a “brutal and sustained sexual assault and beating” while covering the jubilation in Egypt last week following the resignation of President Hosni Mubarak, the network said today.

In a statement, CBS said Logan was on assignment for “60 Minutes” while covering the festive atmosphere last Friday in Cairo’s Tahrir Square when “her team and their security were surrounded by a dangerous element amidst the celebration. It was a mob of more than 200 people whipped into frenzy.”

During the chaos, Logan, 39, became “separated from her crew” and “suffered a brutal and sustained sexual assault and beating before being saved by a group of women and an estimated 20 Egyptian soldiers.”

The separation and assault lasted for roughly 20 to 30 minutes, said a person familiar with the matter, who added that it was “not a rape.”

The network said Logan returned to the US on the first flight the following day.

“She is currently in the hospital recovering,” CBS said, without elaborating. “There will be no further comment from CBS News and Correspondent Logan and her family respectfully request privacy at this time.”

Logan is one of nearly 140 news correspondents who have been injured or killed since Jan. 30 while covering the political unrest in Egypt, according to the Committee to Protect Journalists

Where did that U.S. Federal Aid to Egypt go? Mubarak family pockets

President Hosni Mubarak’s family fortune could be as much as $70 billion U.S. Dollars  according to analysis by Middle East experts.

Much of his wealth in British and Swiss banks or tied up in real estate in London, New York, Los Angeles and along expensive tracts of the Red Sea coast.

After 30 years as president and many more as a senior military official, Mubarak has had access to investment deals that have generated hundreds of millions of pounds in profits. Most of those gains have been taken offshore and deposited in secret bank accounts or invested in upmarket homes and hotels.

According to a report last year in the Arabic newspaper Al Khabar, Mubarak has properties in Manhattan and exclusive Beverly Hills addresses on Rodeo Drive.

His sons, Gamal and Alaa, are also billionaires. A protest outside Gamal’s ostentatious home at 28 Wilton Place in Belgravia, central London, highlighted the family’s appetite for western trophy assets.

Amaney Jamal, a political science professor at Princeton University, said the estimate of $40bn-70bn was comparable with the vast wealth of leaders in other Gulf countries.
