CBS’s Lara Logan Not Defined by Assault in Egypt

The CBS reporter assaulted in Egypt says her best work is yet to come.


It’s been nine weeks since daring CBS reporter Lara Logan was sexually assaulted while covering protests in Egypt’s Tahrir Square for a 60 Minutes story. While little has been heard from Logan during her recovery at home in Washington, her office is sending out thank-you cards to well-wishers. They include a photo of Logan smiling in combat and this note: “The wonderful letters, and kind words of love and support, have carried me through this traumatic time. I can’t tell you how much it has meant to me and how grateful I am. This will not define me. My best work is yet to come! With love, Lara.” [See photos of the Egyptian uprising.]
