Assaulted in Egypt, reporter Lara Logan vows to press on

Sexual attack has CBS News correspondent in hospital, but she remains strong, friends say.

CBS reporter Lara Logan, who was sexually assaulted during her coverage of the Cairo celebrations following the resignation of Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak, has vowed to return to work within weeks.

Lara Logan, 39, was covering celebrations for a "60 Minutes" story, the
network said, when a frenzied mob of about 200 people surrounded her,
her crew and their security team. Separated from the others in the
chaos, Logan was surrounded, beaten and sexually assaulted, a statement from CBS said.

Hours after details of the attack on Miss Logan
emerged, Nir Rosen, a New York University fellow, wrote on Twitter that
she was 'probably just groped like thousands of other women' according to the Daily Mail.

He added: "Lara Logan had to outdo Anderson. ... Yes yes it's wrong what happened to her. Of course. I don't support that. But it would have been funny if it happened to Anderson too."

Rosen had worked for NYU's Center on Law and Security. He resigned on Wednesday, according to the center's executive director.
