Obama calls CBS reporter assaulted in Cairo
WASHINGTON (Reuters) – President Barack Obama on Wednesday telephoned CBS News correspondent Lara Logan, who is recovering from a brutal sexual assault last week in Egypt, a White House official said.
Logan, a 39-year-old South Africa native and longtime war correspondent, has been released from a hospital and is recovering at her home in Washington with her husband and two young children.
She was beaten and sexually assaulted by a mob while covering the jubilation in Cairo's Tahrir Square on Friday, the day Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak stepped down, CBS said on Tuesday.
The White House official confirmed Obama had called her but gave no details.
Logan made her name as a war correspondent for Britain's GMTV during the start of the U.S.-led Afghanistan war in 2001 and subsequently reported on the war in Iraq and its violent aftermath. She joined CBS News in 2002.
I hope she has a lot of support from her family.
