Lara Logan has spoken out for the first time since her terrifying sexual assault in Egypt, describing how attackers "raped her with their hands."
he 39-year-old journalist said she was convinced she would die when the frenzied mob tore her away from her film crew and bodyguard in Cairo's Tahrir Square as as she tried to cover the story of the downfall of Hosni Mubarak.
A group of at least 200 men beat the CBS foreign correspondant, pinched her and tore at her clothes in the attack.
The Egyptian men were hysterical, reportedly shouting, "Jew, Jew." Logan is not Jewish.
She told the New York Times: "For an extended period of time, they raped me with their hands...What really struck me was how merciless they were."
"They really enjoyed my pain and suffering. It incited them to more violence."
She detailed her ordeal in an interview with the newspaper today, and is expected to elaborate on it in an appearance on 60 Minutes on Sunday.
