    An American journalist who was sexually attacked while working in Egypt last week was allegedly also subjected to anti-Jewish chanting.

    CBS news reporter Lara Logan is recovering from “a brutal and sustained sexual assault and beating”, the news organisation said last night.

    They said: “She and her team and their security were surrounded by a dangerous element amidst the celebration. It was a mob of more than 200 people whipped into a frenzy.”

    Ms Logan was in Tahrir Square covering the uprising and the reaction to President Mubarak’s decision to stand down when she was attacked.

    She was later rescued by a group of women and Egyptian soldiers.

    According to reports in the New York Post, Ms Logan’s attackers also shouted at her “Jew, Jew”. The 39-year-old South African born writer, a former GMTV presenter, is not believed to be Jewish.

    Media watchdog the Committee to Protect Journalists has estimated that at least 76 journalists were detained during the protests, including four Israelis.
