Lara Logan, a correspondent for “60 Minutes,” has been readmitted to the hospital, reportedly due to complications stemming from a sexual assault she survived while covering the Arab Spring in Egypt in 2011. While covering celebrations in Cairo’s Tahrir Square the day Egyptian despot Hosni Mubarak stepped down, she was separated from her crew and brutally beaten and sexually assaulted by a mob of attackers. Logan was eventually rescued by a group of women and Egyptian soldiers who stopped the attack. Sources close to her revealed to Breitbart news that she was still suffering physically from the assault. A CBS spokesperson confirmed that she was hospitalized again on Monday, but did not reveal any further details. A longtime friend of Logan’s noted her resolve over the last four years saying, “Very few people know how stoic and incredibly tough this lady is.”
