CBS News’ Lara Logan Talks About Her Assault in Egypt on “60 Minutes”
On Sunday’s “60 Minutes”, CBS News correspondent LARA LOGAN will discuss the “brutal and sustained sexual assault” she endured in Egypt two months ago. In the interview, Lara says, quote, “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.’”
Lara says she got through it by thinking of her two young children, and she also describes how it felt to be reunited with them after returning home.
She says, quote, “I felt like I had been given a second chance that I didn’t deserve, because I did that to them. I came so close to leaving them, to abandoning them.”
