Logan was covering the Arab Spring protests four year ago in Egypt when she was separated from her crew by a "group of men who tore at her clothes and groped and beat her body." Logan told The New York Timesthat "for an extended period of time, they raped me with their hands."
Logan's close friend Ed Butowsky told Brietbart that she has been in and out of the hospital since returning from Egypt, including four times this year.
"Very few people know how stoic and incredibly tough this lady is. In spite of everything she's had to face in the last two years, people have no idea the physical suffering she has been enduring due to the brutal sexual assault she encountered in Egypt during the Arab Spring while reporting for 60 Minutes," Butowsky said. "I've been in and around this business and people don't understand how hard reporters work and how much time they put in. Lara, above all of it, has been doing it for four years since this brutal attack and suffering in every way, shape or form. Maybe it's time for people to realize these people are human beings."
"We were sorry to hear this morning that Lara was readmitted to the hospital," a 60 Minutes spokesman said in a statement. "We wish her a speedy recovery."
