Logan Sexually Assaulted by Egyptian Protesters

This is just awful.

During the euphoria that followed the news of Hosni Mubarak's resignation last Friday, a bunch of thugs masquerading as protesters savagely beat and sexually assaulted 60 Minutes correspondent Lara Logan.

Logan was saved by a group of female protesters and Egyptian soldiers. Unfortunately, the damage was done. Logan has returned to the United States and as of this writing remains hospitalized. I wish her a speedy recovery.

Now I realize that most Egyptian protesters behaved in a peaceful manner but this simply cannot stand. The people who attacked Logan must be brought to justice and punished severely. If this fails to happen it will be a stain on the Egyptian protests.
