Lara Logan released from Egyptian Military Custody

Lara Logan and her crew have been released from custody one day after being detained by the Egyptian military. Logan was questioned and then detained while outside Israel’s embassy in Cairo. CBS was not commenting yesterday, but in an internal email obtained by TVNewser this morning, CBS News D.C. bureau chief Chris Isham writes:

Lara, Don and Max were released from Egyptian military custody early this morning and are now enroute back to Washington via London. They are scheduled to arrive at Dulles this evening.

New York Times’ Brian Stelter reports Brian Williams and Katie Couric are also returning to the U.S. amid heightened concerns for the safety of all journalists. Couric was in her New York studio last night for “Evening News.” Williams returns today.
