NEW YORK - CBS correspondent Lara Logan felt sure she would die while being sexually assaulted by a mob when covering the jubilation in Cairo's Tahrir Square after Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak stepped down, she says in an interview to be broadcast on Sunday.

"There was no doubt in my mind that I was in the process of dying," she says in a transcript released by CBS' "60 Minutes" program. "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."

Logan, a 39-year-old South Africa native and longtime war correspondent, was flown back to the United States and hospitalized for four days. She was covering the celebrations for "60 Minutes" on Feb. 11 when she and her team were surrounded by a mob of hundreds whipped into a frenzy.
