Senior CBS correspondent Lara Logan was brutally attacked by a mob last week in Egypt.
More than 200 people surrounded Logan and her crew during Friday's celebration in Tahrir Square after President Hosni Mubarak announced his resignation.
After being separated from her security detail, CBS said she was "surrounded by a dangerous element amidst the celebration" with more than 200 people "whipped into a frenzy."
CBS added that Logan suffered a brutal beating and sustained sexual assault.
A group of women and more than 20 Egyptian soldiers rescued the reporter.
The Committee to Protect Journalists called the attack "alarming," describing Logan as a "brilliant, courageous and committed reporter."
Logan is currently recovering in an American hospital. She told friends she plans to return to work in a few weeks.
