Lara Logan

CBS News broadcaster Lara Logan has returned to working on '60 Minutes' more than six months she was ordered to take a leave of absence. The 43 year-old was suspended after airing a wrongful report about the 2012 attack on the American Special Mission compound in Benghazi, which killed four Americans.

Logan has not publically commented on her absence or return, but CBS News spokeswoman Sonya McNair confirmed on Wednesday (June 4th) that she is back at work, but didn't go into any further detail.

CBS Suspends Anchor Lara Logan & Producer Max McClellan Following Benghazi Report

CBS' star anchor Lara Logan has been ordered to take leave after running an erroneous interview with a supposedly in-the-know security contractor in regards to the 2012 attack on a US diplomatic post in Benghazi, Libya. Logan has been put on leave along with producer Max McClellan for running the report, which Logan has since called a "mistake."

Following the airing of the report on 60 Minutes on 27 October, an internal enquiry was made by the station after reports began to emerge stating that the interviewee had given false information and wasn't even at the Benghazi base when the attack took place. Dylan Davies claimed that he was in the Libyan city when the attack on the US diplomatic post took place on 11 September 2012, going on to claim that he fought off an assailant and later saw the body of US Ambassador Christopher Stevens, who served as the U.S. Ambassador to Libya before he was killed in the attacks.

After the initial interview has held, other news outlets began to publish articles that questioned Davies' comments and eventually it was discovered that he had told FBI investigators and his own employers that he was not at the Benghazi compound on the night of the attack. An internal investigation was run by the network, which determined that Ms Logan - who apologised on air soon after the interview was disproved - should not have run the story. The report also questioned whether Logan should have been reporting on Benghazi in the first place, after she gave a speech in Chicago discrediting reports that the US military had suppressed al-Qaeda.
