NEW YORK (AP) — CBS correspondent Lara Logan says she believed she was going to die while she was being sexually assaulted and beaten in Egypt's Tahrir Square.

Logan speaks out Sunday on CBS' "60 Minutes" about the assault, which happened while she was reporting on that country's political uprising. She was set upon by a mob of several hundred men.

She said in an interview with Scott Pelley that "there was no doubt in my mind that I was in the process of dying. I thought not only am I going to die, but it's going to be just a torturous death that's going to go on forever."

After being rescued, she returned to the United States and was treated in a hospital for four days.
