Lara Logan beaten with flag poles during attack in Egypt

NEW details emerged about CBS reporter Lara Logan's brutal attack in Egypt, including that she was stripped, repeatedly punched and slapped and pinched so hard that sensitive parts of her body were covered in red marks, according to a new report.
Wounds on her body were consistent with being hit by the poles that demonstrators were using to fly flags, London's Sunday Times reported.
Logan, chief foreign correspondent for the network, was taken to the Four Seasons hotel, treated and sedated and then flown out of the country. She continues to recover at her Washington, DC, home.
CBS originally said only that Logan was "surrounded and suffered a brutal and sustained sexual assault and beating before being saved by a group of women and an estimated 20 Egyptian soldiers".
Guards with her also were beaten by the mob celebrating the exit of Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak on February 11. One had his hand broken.
"Lara is getting better daily," a friend told the Times of the South African-born Logan. "The psychological trauma is as bad as, if not worse than, the physical injuries. She might talk about it at sometime in the future, but not now."
The White House last week demanded that Egypt bring those who attacked Logan to justice.

Obama calls to comfort assaulted reporter Lara Logan

PRESIDENT Barack Obama has called sex assault victim Lara Logan as she left hospital to express his concern for her condition.
The 39-year-old CBS reporter was discharged from an unnamed hospital at 5pm Tuesday (local time) and returned home to her husband Joe Burkett and their children to recuperate.
The Daily Beast reports Logan is in "remarkably good spirits" after she was attacked by a mob of protesters in Tahrir Square, Cairo.
The White House has denounced the attack and called for the attackers to be brought to justice.
White House administration spokesman Jay Carney said: "We believe that those responsible for these acts - and obviously there was other violence - need to be held accountable."
Logan was covering the celebrations in Egypt after President Hosni Mubarak's resignation when she was set upon by a "mob of more than 200 people whipped into frenzy," according to a statement from CBS.
She suffered a "brutal and sustained sexual assault and beating" before being rescued by Egyptian soldiers and a group of women who escorted her back to her hotel.
A CBS colleague of Logan told the Mailonline "every day is a struggle right now for Lara. It's going to be a long time before she gets over this, but we are all here for her."
A journalist who tweeted derogatory comments about Logan's assault has been shamed into resigning from his his fellowship at New York University's Centre on Law and Security.
Nir Rosen wrote on Twitter "Jesus Christ, at a moment when she is going to become a martyr and glorified we should at least remember her role as a major war monger."
He later retracted the statement, as well as others he made afterwards, writing "I'm very ashamed for my insensitive and offensive comments" 17-2011

CBS correspondent Lara Logan raped and beaten in Cairo's Tahrir Square

TOP US-based journalist Lara Logan suffered a "brutal and sustained sexual assault" last week while reporting in Cairo's Tahrir Square.
The 39-year old CBS correspondent was in the centre of the square last Friday as crowds feted Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak's resignation.
Suddenly, Logan and her security team were circled by a mob of more than 200 people including "a dangerous element amidst the celebration," CBS said in a statement.
"In the crush of the mob, she was separated from her crew. She was surrounded and suffered a brutal and sustained sexual assault and beating before being saved by a group of women and an estimated 20 Egyptian soldiers," CBS said in a statement on its website.
Logan, who is CBS's chief foreign affairs correspondent, was rushed out of the country the next day. She is currently at an undisclosed hospital receiving treatment.
On February 3, the South African-born correspondent was among a string of reporters arrested by Mubarak's supporters amid a crackdown on the press, according to TIME magazine.
CBS refused to confirm or deny the report, citing the safety of its journalists in Egypt, though TIME said she planned to leave the country immediately because of the detention.
The network said yesterday it would not comment further on Logan's condition beyond the brief statement.
