(NECN) - A CBS News correspondent who says she was attacked and sexually assaulted during the riots in Egypt has been released from a U.S. Hospital and is recovering at home.

CBS says foreign correspondent Lara Logan went through a brutal and sustained sexual assault by a frenzied mob during Friday's celebrations of Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak's ouster.

Among journalists, the Lara Logan story raises lots of concerns and poses lots of questions. Florence Graves, founding director of Brandeis University's Schuster Institute for Investigative Journalism joins Jim Braude on Broadside to discuss Logan's story.
