Lara Logan: What Really Happened to the Reporter Attacked in Egypt?


Lara Logan is lucky to be alive. The mother of two was just released from the hospital and is recovered at home after a horrific and “prolonged beating and sexual assault” in Egypt.

The CBS news reporter attacked by a 200-strong mob last week in Cairo during what should have been a night of celebration not violence.

But what really happened to Lara Logan?

So far we don’t know much about what happened that night. Lara Logan is not ready to talk to the press about the details of the her attack yet, but in interviews she is often blunt and open, so we can probably expect full disclosure from the reporter. We do know that she has sustained ‘serious’ internal injuries.

But one topic that is becoming big fodder on the internet of whether the “sexual assault” she endured was actually rape. The Wall Street Journal reported that someone close to Lara Logan said that it was not a case of rape. It might have been a situation where she was groped as she was beaten. But regardless of the definition of “sexual assault” what happened to Lara Logan is horrific, terrible and tremendously sad.

Do you think it matters, in the wake of the media storm about her attack, the extent of her attack?
