CBS’ Lara Logan Released From Detention In Egypt, Bound For U.S.

CBS News correspondent Lara Logan and her two-person crew have all been released from detention in Egypt. The CBS crew was taken into custody Thursday amid a roundup of journalists–some of whom were beaten and threatened with death.

Logan, who serves as CBS News’ chief foreign affairs correspondent, was covering the uprising in Cairo with CBS crewmembers Don Lee and Max McClellan when they were confronted and arrested.

During Logan and crew’s detention, CBS refused to make any comment, citing the security of their employees. The network reportedly now says the three are safe and sound and headed home to the U.S.

CBS has also recalled CBS Evening News anchor Katie Couric from Egypt as security conditions on the ground for journalists have deteriorated.
