CBS News’ Lara Logan is Hospitalized Again

LARA-LOGAN

Lara Logan is back in a Washington hospital.

The 60 Minutes correspondent, 43, who was sexually assaulted in Egypt in 2011 is continuing to cope with complications stemming from that brutal incident.

CNN.com reports she was admitted on Monday for internal bleeding. Breitbart.com reports she has been in the hospital four times in the last year. She was hospitalized in February with internal bleeding.

CBS would say in a statement only: “We were sorry to learn that Lara was readmitted to the hospital. We wish her a speedy recovery.”

Breitbart quotes Logan friend Ed Butowsky as saying, “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.”

Logan was separated from her producer and bodyguard on Feb. 11, 2011, in Tahrir Square in Cairo, by what the New York Times described as a “group of men who tore at her clothes and groped and beat her body.” She said they “raped me with their hands.”
