Lara Logan, CBS News "60 Minutes" correspondent, was readmitted to a hospital in Washington D.C. this week due to ongoing complications from the sexual assault she suffered while covering Egypt's so-called "Arab Spring" uprisings in 2011.

"I’ve been in and around this business and people don’t understand how hard reporters work and how much time they put in," Ed Butowsky, a close friend and confidante of Lara and her family, told Breitbart News

"Lara, above all of it, has been doing it for four years since this brutal attack and suffering in every way, shape, or form. Maybe it’s time for people to realize these people are human beings."

Kevin Tedesco, a spokesman for "60 Minutes," released a statement that said, "We were sorry to learn that Lara was readmitted to the hospital. We wish her a speedy recovery."

Logan was separated from her bodyguard and surrounded by a mob in Tahrir Square in February 2011. She was brutally beaten and sexually assaulted, and was saved by a group of women who intervened, as well as Egyptian soldiers, Reuters reported.

Months later, Logan said she thought to herself during that attack that "not only am I going to die, but it's going to be just a torturous death that's going to go on forever."

In 2013, Logan was placed on temporary leave after she gave a report on the September 2012 attack on the U.S. diplomatic mission in Benghazi, Libya, that turned out to be false.
