“Very few people know how stoic and incredibly tough this lady is,” said Logan’s friend Ed Butowsky. “In spite of everything she’s had to face in the last two years, people have no idea the physical suffering she has been enduring due to the brutal sexual assault she encountered.”

While covering the protests in 2011, Logan was separated from her bodyguard in Cairo’s Tahrir Square. Afterwards, the reporter “suffered a brutal and sustained sexual assault and beating before being saved by a group of women and an estimated 20 Egyptian soldiers,” CBS said in a statement at the time.
