The night of Feb. 11, the Egyptian dictatorship of Hosni Mubarak was falling. More than 100,000 people filled Cairo’s Tahrir Square in wild celebration. Among those in the crowd was “60 Minutes” colleague, correspondent Lara Logan.

“They were tearing my body in every direction at this point, tearing my muscles. And they were trying to tear off chunks of my scalp, they had my head in different directions.”

During the revolution, dozens of reporters were assaulted, often by agents of the regime. On the night of the 11th, a mob turned on Lara and her “60 Minutes” team and singled her out in a violent sexual assault. Since then, Lara has been recuperating with her husband and two children.
