(London Telegraph) Natasha Smith, 21, travelled to Cairo to make a documentary for a university assignment. She became separated from her friends in Tahrir Square and was subjected to a horrific assault in which she was stripped naked and abused in a crowd of hundreds.

On Tuesday, Miss Smith wrote an account of the ordeal on an internet blog. It has since had over 230,000 hits.

In her first newspaper interview since the attack, Miss Smith told The Daily Telegraph that she was “naïve” to venture into an area renowned for mob assaults on women. Lara Logan, a reporter for US network CBS, was subjected to a similar attack by 200 men last year.
