CBS News' Lara Logan On Tahrir Square Attack: She Feared 'Tortuous Death'

CBS News correspondent Lara Logan is speaking for the first time about the attack and sexual assault she suffered in Cairo's Tahrir Square on Feb. 11.

Her network reports that on this Sunday's edition of 60 Minutes, Logan says "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."

The show airs at 7 p.m. ET.
