Logan was forcefully separated from her producer and bodyguard as she reported in Cairo’s Tahrir Square, surrounded by the crowds celebrating the toppling of then-President Hosni Mubarak. Logan was beaten and sexually assaulted by a group of men.

She later said in an interview with Scott Pelley, “There was no doubt in my mind that I was in the process of dying … I thought not only am I going to die, but it’s going to be just a torturous death that’s going to go on forever.”
