Reporter Beaten, Sexually Assaulted

“60 Minutes” correspondent Lara Logan is shown last week covering the reaction in Cairo's Tahrir Square the day Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak stepped down. CBS News says Logan was attacked Friday, and suffered a brutal beating and sexual assault before being saved by a group of women and an estimated 20 Egyptian soldiers. She is recovering in a U.S. hospital. Logan, CBS News' chief foreign affairs correspondent, is one of at least 140 correspondents who have been injured or killed since Jan. 30 while covering the unrest in Egypt, according to the Committee to Protect Journalists.

Question: Do you appreciate the courage that goes into gathering news in some of the world's hot spots after hearing of the pain and suffering suffering by CBS' correspondent Lara Logan?
