This makes us sick.
We've just received word that Lara Logan, a reporter for 60 Minutes, suffered a terrible, brutal and inhuman beating while trying to cover the crisis in Egypt.
According to reports, on the day Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak resigned, Lara Logan was in Tahrir Square, covering the crowds reactions to the news. Suddenly ,"mob of more than 200 people, who were whipped into a frenzy," surrounded the crew and separated Lara from her team. That's when Lara reportedly suffered a horrifying sexual assault and beating before being saved by a group of women and an estimated 20 Egyptian soldiers. We're told she was immediately sent back to the United States to receive medical attention. At this time she is still in the hospital, but her family is asking for privacy as they help her deal.
There are no words. We can't stress enough how violence is never the answer, especially such disgusting acts of brutality like this.
We send our best wishes to Lara and her family in this difficult of times. Our thoughts are with you.
