Eighteen months after CBS News's Lara Logan was attacked and groped by a mob in Cairo's Tahrir Square, a reporter for France 24 TV has suffered the same rough treatment. Sonia Dridi had just finished a broadcast when, as a colleague reported, "the crowd surged in and then it went crazy. It was basically me keeping her in a bear hug, both arms around her and face-to-face. It was hard to tell who was helping and who was groping her." Dridi later Tweeted that she was "more frightened than hurt." Nonetheless, the network is working on bringing her back to France.
